Coming with Massachusetts Secretary of Education Matthew Malone, Warren pushed students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form which qualifies students for a wide range of government aid programs.
This Sunday, Jan. 26, is Massachusetts FAFSA Day, where students and their parents can go to sites across the region to receive assistance completing the forms.
“Fill out the form!" said Warren, according to On Campus, WGBH News High Education blog.
Warren says many of the students who need support the most are not getting it, in part, because they’re failing to apply.
"The forms are complex," she said. "But what we’re doing here at Charlestown and across all of Massachusetts is we’re providing a lot of help.”
Studies show when low-income families had a professional help them fill out their financial aid forms students were dramatically more likely to enroll in and complete college.
