Outreach and Early Awareness

This committee is responsible for establishing financial aid awareness throughout the state. We do this by organizing and volunteering at the National College Fair as well as work together with MOHE, Minnesota Goes to College, and high school counselors to coordinate volunteers for FAFSA completion/information events.

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!

Volunteers are welcome to use the following PowerPoint resources when presenting on behalf of MAFAA or at a Financial Aid Night.
