FAFSA Fast Break is a competition among 20 school districts led by Chiefs for Change members to see which one can get the greatest percentage of high school seniors to complete the FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. FAFSA is used to determine grants, work-study funds, and loans for students attending college or technical, vocational, or trade schools. The federal government awards more than $120 billion in financial aid each year, and studies have shown that students who complete the FAFSA are more likely to enroll in college and earn a degree.
