Title: National Student Aid Profile: Overview of 2022 Federal Programs
Federal financial aid programs play a critical role for students as college costs continue to rise. The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) recently released its annual publication outlining student aid available at the federal level. NASFAA aims to increase awareness of these programs, helping students understand how to apply for funds and improving public knowledge broadly.
The publication includes descriptions of Title IV programs, number of award recipients and average aid awards, and funding allocations and award recipients by state. NASFAA’s report also outlines congressional legislation related to student aid introduced in 2021 and an update on budget and appropriations for fiscal year 2022.
