Free money is being left on the table. And an education data analytics company in Clark County is trying to rectify this.
The money is in the form of Pell grants – a federal grant given to undergraduates to go to college. The average Pell grant is $3,700 per year, and can be as high as $5,800.
But to be eligible, students have to fill out what’s known as the FAFSA – which means Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
The FAFSA is a form that you fill out online. They’ve streamlined it in recent years, but it still takes some time. That can be daunting to some students, who simply don’t fill it out.
Data Insight Partners is determined to get students and their parents over that hesitancy.
