He will help you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that could qualify you for literally tens of thousands of dollars in entitlement money. That means you don't have to pay it back. And if you have already completed the FAFSA and need help searching for merit-based scholarships, he can help you with that as well.
