What Are We Up To? 

If you are passionate about financial aid outreach and early awareness, the Outreach Committee is the place for you!

FAFSA Completion Event/Financial Aid Nights

One of the primary ways that MAFAA members serve our communities is to provide a professional presence at "Minnesota Goes to College" FAFSA completion events or high school financial aid nights.

High school counselors, prospective students, and their parents rely on the MAFAA community to help them navigate through the complicated financial aid process.

MAFAA members, please consider volunteering to serve at these events!
