About Fund My Future
Fund My Future, an Arkansas Student Loan Authority (ASLA) initiative, provides extensive college planning information to high school students and parents. The Fund My Future website offers a free, online scholarship search and provides information regarding federal aid, scholarships, grants, and Arkansas state aid. Additionally, advice and information on completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), financial aid checklists for juniors and seniors, and how best to complete scholarship applications are topics discussed on the website. Valuable college planning information is also disseminated through Facebook and Twitter on a weekly basis.
The Fund My Future program is Arkansas’s comprehensive resource of financial aid information for students and parents planning for college and assists them in their search for scholarships and financial aid.
The Arkansas Student Loan Authority is a state agency created to provide access to and information about educational funding for all Arkansas students who wish to attend institutions of higher education. For the last three decades, ASLA has helped make higher education accessible to Arkansas students. Because ASLA is non-profit state agency we have been able to give back to the community through a variety of educational and scholarship programs.
ASLA annually publishes a “How to Pay for College” booklet in cooperation with the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. ASLA strives to put the booklet in the hands of every high school senior in Arkansas while also making it available to underclassmen. Working with high school counselors, college Trio counselors, and admissions offices, ASLA distributes free information and offers free assistance with college preparation and available financial aid programs.
ASLA holds approximately $500 million in federal student loans and in 2012 became a loan servicer on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education, which involves the servicing of approximately 100,000 federal student loan accounts. ASLA’s mission to provide access to and information about education funding continues as ASLA has evolved into a federal student loan servicer. ASLA’s motto, “We’re Here for You” remains genuine. We will be here for students, parents, financial aid professionals and high school counselors.
