What is the FAFSA and CA DREAM Application?
FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is your first step toward getting financial aid to help pay for college, career school or graduate school. By completing this one application you can find out if you are eligible for federal, state, and school aid. (https://studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa)
CA DREAM allows “undocumented and nonresident documented students who meet certain requirements to apply for and receive private scholarships funded through public universities, state-administered financial aid, university grants, community fee waivers and Cal Grants.”
