30 October, 2007
Time.com named the new online FAFSA4caster, created by the Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, and designed by JWT Specialized Communications, as one of the Best Web sites of 2007. The FAFSA4caster (http://www.fafsa4caster.ed.gov) was created to help families figure out if college is possible financially.
Federal Student Aid is the country’s largest source of financial aid for post-secondary education, offering the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA4caster is a new tool, created to simplify the FAFSA process by letting families start exploring their options earlier on, providing information on whether a family is eligible to receive aid and how much they will need to contribute toward college expenses.
Reflecting the clean construction and usability of the FAFSA site, the FAFSA4caster site, designed by JWT Specialized Communications, one of the world’s leading specialty marketing and communications companies, provides an easy “A,B,C” process for discovering one’s eligibility for student aid. The FAFSA4caster will instantly calculate a student’s eligibility for aid, reducing the time it takes to complete the FAFSA and simplifying the financial aid process for students and families.
