Meet Frank

At Frank, we have one mission — getting students to and through college while radically improving their financial lives.

Who We Are

We believe that education is an investment in our future. By bringing our unique and diverse experiences to our mission we aim to empower students to build a strong financial foundation for themselves and their future.

The Problem

Research shows that financial concerns are a primary factor in why many students fail to complete their college degree. The impact is even bigger for low-income and first-generation college students — who face a greater risk of either not enrolling or dropping out.

The Solution

At Frank, we knew that we had an opportunity to positively impact students throughout their education by delivering an improved FAFSA®, discounted college courses, and resources and tools for college students.

Our Story

charlie-javice-ceo

2017

In 2017, Founder Charlie Javice launched Frank to help students afford the college of their dreams without being crushed by student debt. She raised a total of $15.7M, the largest venture round for a female founder that year, to get the company off the ground and developed a simplified, fast, and easy FAFSA® to help students and their families file for financial aid.

2018

In just under two years, the company helped about 350,000 students find about $7 billion in aid – for free. By including additional tools and resources, including the in-depth library, How To Pay For College and College Search, Frank was one step closer to helping students make smarter financial choices.

We’re changing how students pay for college — and you could, too!

We are not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Education. Federal Student Aid (FSA), an office of the U.S. Department of Education, makes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form and assistance available to the public for free at fafsa.gov.

¹70% savings on college courses based on US News and World Report’s estimate that in-state tuition at a public 4-year institution is $9,687, or $969 per 3 credit course given 30 credits per year, and Classfinder's 3 credit course offering has a minimum price of $295.
