Service Program Launches to Support FAFSA Completion in Mississippi
Get2College, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and Community Colleges Partner to Meet Demand
Get2College, the signature program of the Woodward Hines Education Foundation (WHEF), has re-launched Get2College Corps, a yearlong paid internship to assist students around the state with FAFSA completion. The 21-person team is composed of members of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honors society for two-year college students.
Get2College will provide intern scholarships of $5,000 each ($2,500 per semester upon completion of required
hours) for 21 Phi Theta Kappa members from 13 partnering community colleges in Mississippi. Scholars may utilize these funds to complete an associate degree at a two-year college or transfer to a four-year college. If you are interested and eligible to apply, click the link below!
Completing the FAFSA, or the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is an important first step for students seeking financial aid for college. The FAFSA determines a prospective or current college student’s eligibility for financial aid from the U.S. Department of Education, and colleges may also use the FAFSA to award their own scholarships and grants. Students who complete the FAFSA are more than 50 percent more likely to enroll in college than those who do not.
