What our members say . . .

“Being a member of KASFAA has given me the confidence to pursue opportunities I would have never considered–being new to financial aid I was very insecure about my knowledge of all things financial aid. The KASFAA community has brought out the best in me while encouraging me to take a chance and try something new.

― Monique Shaw, Kentucky State University

I appreciate the opportunities through KASFAA to develop a network of Kentucky financial aid professionals who are always willing to share knowledge, insights, ideas, and understanding.  Many of my KASFAA colleagues are among my closest personal friends.

― Laura Keown, Centre College
