This resource is meant to help youth who are about to graduate from higher school and/or who are under the age of 26 with juvenile justice system involvement maximize the amount of financial aid they receive to attend college. The guide covers what financial aid is and how to get it, offers tips for troubleshooting common issues, and provides links to resources that cover in-depth financial aid questions for foster youth, homeless youth, and youth who are undocumented or DACA recipients. The guide is intended to be accessible enough for use by youth on their own or in partnership with financial aid counselors, social workers, probation officers, and other adults supporting youth in seeking financial aid.
