MCUF Supports “Reach for the Pie” Contest – Promoting FASFA Completion by High School Seniors

The Michigan Achievement Scholarship and MiStudent Aid recently announced their “Reach for the Pie” contest. Both the Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) and Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) are proud to support this contest, which encourages graduating high school seniors to fill out the FAFSA form by June 30. The contest is giving one hundred seniors free pizza for a year.

Completing the FAFSA form unlocks grants and funding from Michigan universities and is required for students to qualify for money from either the Michigan Achievement Scholarship or Michigan Reconnect.

All of this goes along with the current proposal to require completion of the federal financial aid form, in order to graduate from high school in Michigan. If the bill passes, it would bring Michigan in line with about a dozen other states that have similar laws, making completing the FAFSA a graduation requirement.

MCUF is working with GUD Marketing to provide free marketing assets that credit unions are encouraged to share with their local high schools, and use them themselves, to help spread the word about the “Reach for the Pie” contest. And get more students and families to complete the FAFSA this year, unlocking thousands in grant dollars and funding.

Learn more about the “Reach for the Pie” contest here. Free marketing assets for high school and credit union use, will also be posted online soon.
