Reference: U.S. Department of Education Releases New Financial Aid Toolkit

From the United States Dept. of Education:

The U.S. Department of Education [recently launched]  an online “one-stop shop” aimed at guidance counselors and other advisers, such as staff or volunteers at community-based organizations, who assist students through the process of selecting and financing their higher education. The Financial Aid Toolkit consolidates financial aid resources and content into a searchable online database, making it easy for individuals to quickly access the information they need to support their students.


The searchable online database provides access to resources covering the entire financial aid lifecycle from applying for financial aid to repaying student loans. It includes documents such as financial aid night materials, presentations, brochures, videos, and sample tweets and Facebook posts. The toolkit also offers professional development information such as training opportunities and resources for self-instruction.
