The Newark FAFSA Challenge is a citywide effort to help more Newark, NJ high school seniors complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Only about 60% of Newark high school seniors completed the FAFSA by June 2019, leaving behind millions of dollars in state and federal financial aid. Our goal is to increase the percentage of Newark high school seniors completing the FAFSA to 70% by June 2020.
