October Launch Social Media Toolkit
FAFSA/CADAA/CHAFEE OCT. 1-MAR 2 TOOLKIT
The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) created this toolkit to help California community partners strengthen their student engagement efforts. We are responsible for overseeing financial aid programs for students in California attending educational programs including public and private universities, colleges, and vocational schools.
To increase awareness and application submissions to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), California Dream Act Application (CADAA), and Chafee Grant for Foster Youth, CSAC is running a marketing and outreach campaign encouraging students to apply for financial aid. In order to maximize financial aid opportunities, students should submit their financial aid application by the state priority deadline of March 2nd.
Please use the following information when posting about the campaign on social media. This helps CSAC roll out a cohesive, consistently branded campaign. Make sure to tag your posts with our hashtag!
