About I'm Going

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, annually makes more than $100 billion in federal grants, work-study and loans available to students and families for education beyond high school. The I’m Going public service campaign is designed to inform students and their families of the resources available to them through the federal student financial assistance programs.

In this campaign, real students just like you share their own stories about getting money for college and pursuing their dreams.

Caitlin always wanted to be a teacher. She’s going to college to be a special education teacher.

Eric learned from his mom that he had to take responsibility for his own life. He’s going to college to study sports medicine.

Chris knew he had to keep focused and have faith to make his life all he wanted it to be. He’s going to college to be a medical assistant.

Delia always dreamed of college, but didn’t want to burden her mother with the responsibility of paying for her dreams. She’s going to college so she can be her own boss.
