Member Appreciation Day

The National Student Financial Aid Council — the precursor to NASFAA — was formed 54 years ago on October 24, 1966. Our organization was founded, just after the Higher Education Act of 1965 was signed into law, because financial aid administrators understood that access to higher education has the ability to change people's lives for the better and recognized the need for an entity to aid in those efforts.

NASFAA's operations and influence have grown and expanded over the years, largely due to the passion and commitment of financial aid administrators like you. What hasn't changed is our commitment to the students we serve. Each year practicing financial aid administrators guide our efforts, set out strategic plans, and partner with NASFAA staff to fulfill our vision to shape the future by promoting access and success.

In 2019-20, more than 160 volunteers moved us one step closer to realizing that vision. In honor of our founding, we celebrate you, our members.
