Robert P. Huff Golden Quill Award

The Robert P. Huff Golden Quill Award may be presented each year to an individual or individuals chosen for their contributions to the literature on student financial aid. The award is named in honor of Bob Huff, former director of financial aid at Stanford University and himself an outstanding contributor to the scholarly literature on student aid. Bob received the first Golden Quill Award in 1984.

Nominees for the award are judged on the basis of published work which exemplifies the highest quality of research methodology, analysis, or topical writing on the subject of student financial aid or its administration. NASFAA’s National Chair selects the Golden Quill recipient with consideration given to nominations submitted by the NASFAA Research Committee and the Editorial Board of the Journal of Student Financial Aid.
