    Please register if you would like to join our book club to explore and discuss our third book, Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces by Sally McGraw.

    A live, in-person, discussion for this book will be held during a session at the upcoming MASFAA conference this October in Detroit, Michigan October 16-19, 2022. This does not mean you have to attend the conference to register and participate as we will also be using our discussion board to share our feedback and experience with the book.

    Mission Statement: As leaders of the financial aid community, it is our goal and duty to help students obtain access to a college education and achieve their educational goals. By expanding our understanding of diverse groups, book club members will strive to think critically and inclusively to inform decision-making, the populations we serve, and our communities at-large. 

    MASFAA’s Equality Talk is designed to

    • Expand participants’ awareness and appreciation of diversity 
    • Promote open and extended discussion of inclusion and equity issues
    • Provide a safe setting to be vulnerable as we expand our knowledge of critical issues 
    • Connect and enhance the feeling of community within the organization

    Join MASFAA's book club and converse on these important topics with your Midwest colleagues. Check out the Equality Talk Book Club page here.

    The Midwest Association for Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA) acknowledges that many students face financial, academic, and social barriers that complicate the completion of their education. As financial aid professionals, we believe all students should be granted access to an affordable education to achieve their education and career goals. 

    The MASFAA Access Scholarship seeks to support students facing barriers to their financial, academic, and social success. In 2022, MASFAA will provide a one-time $500 scholarship to offer financial support towards a student’s tuition, fees, books and supplies, housing, and transportation costs.

    All students (certificate, associate, undergraduate, graduate, or professional) from the MASFAA region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, West Virginia, or Wisconsin) are welcome to apply.

    The deadline to apply is September 15, 2022.

    1. Application Completion

    3. Education and Career Goals
