Student at the University of California, Davis
Mary knows that her experience and struggle to apply for federal financial aid is not unique. The application has proven to be confusing, inaccessible and unclear in countless areas for her and her peers. She believes that an application this time sensitive and essential to the college process should be as seamless as possible to ensure that students are being taken care of during the financial aid process. An application that ultimately determines the aid that one receives for college is an issue of dire importance. She believes that it is her moral obligation to ensure that all students are given a fair chance to apply for aid without barriers that could be avoided through simplifying the Free Application for Federal Student Aid in its entirety.
