I Am College Bound: I Filed
Did you know?
- Every year, college-going students leave billions of dollars unclaimed in financial aid. The Class of 2021 left $3.75 Billion* on the table in Pell Grants alone across the country. New Hampshire students missed out on over $7,851,300!
- The FAFSA is required for most forms of financial aid- not just grants from the federal government. In most cases, students must file their FAFSA to be considered for merit-based aid, too- even private scholarships.
- Filing the FAFSA is easier than you think- and we are here to help!

I Am College Bound: I Filed is a New Hampshire statewide campaign to support students in filing their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The purpose of I Filed is to deliver crucial knowledge about the FAFSA, demystify the financial aid process, and provide direct avenues for students to file. In New Hampshire and across the country, not only are college application numbers down, but FAFSA filings are seeing even more dramatic decreases. This trend indicates that many students are not utilizing financial aid, adding to the barriers of attending and completing college. The NHHEAF Network is thrilled to work closely with colleges and universities across the state as we create and implement a comprehensive outreach campaign in support of students’ financial aid journeys, from their application to graduation.
