In keeping with its commitment to enhancing access to postsecondary education for America's students, NASFAA offers a variety of services and products both to its member institutions and organizations and to the public. For the public, our Web site at www.studentaid.org offers "Academics: You Can Do It . . . Financial Aid: You Can Afford It," an introductory guide to planning for and financing postsecondary education. "Cash for College," available both online and in bulk print quantities, explains the major student financial aid programs and application procedures. "Financial Aid Night on the Web" provides similar information of special interest to guidance counselors and community leaders. NASFAA is national manager of "College Goal Sunday," a project funded by Lumina Foundation for Education designed to assist students and families in completing the universally-required Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please see www.CollegeGoalSundayUSA.org for details. We are also active partners in the "College Is Possible" public awareness campaign (www.CollegeIsPossible.org). Programs for members include legislative and regulatory assistance on student aid matters, conferences, training workshops, and "Today's News," published daily on our home page and available for public viewing. NASFAA conducts research and policy analysis on important student aid topics and supports research through a research grant program. We publish a magazine, "Student Aid Transcript," the scholarly "Journal of Student Financial Aid," and numerous other documents designed to inform the community on matters related to higher education and help financial aid administrators serve students more effectively. We are active in Web-based training for financial aid administrators (LearnStudentAid.org); sponsor a comprehensive peer-review program, the "Standards of Excellence Review Program"; provide leadership training; explore ethical issues and help members explore and resolve them; and support college access programs through active participation in organizations such as the Pathways to College Network (www.PathwaystoCollege.net) and Scholarship America (www.ScholarshipAmerica.org).
