For students and parents interested in learning more about financing an education beyond high school, financial aid nights can be an invaluable source of information. NASFAA's financial aid night toolkit has recently been updated with information for the 2022-23 academic year and is now available to assist NASFAA members in conducting or providing support for these presentations. In the toolkit you'll find a slideshow designed to give students and families a basic understanding of financial aid concepts, sources of financial aid, and the application process for federal student aid. The toolkit also contains a guide to planning and conducting a financial aid night, as well as updated versions of supplemental student and parent handouts to help you give a compelling and informative presentation. The content may be presented in person or virtually.
