Finaid was established in the fall of 1994 as a public service. This award-winning site has grown into the most comprehensive source of student financial aid information, advice and tools — on or off the web.
Finaid has earned a stellar reputation in the educational community as the best web site of its kind. It’s comprehensive, it’s informative, it’s objective — and it’s the first stop on the web for students looking for ways to finance their education.
Every major newspaper and personal finance magazine in the country has reviewed the site. The New York Daily News called Finaid “the hottest site on the Internet for financial aid tips.” It is “the best place to begin a search” according to the Chicago Sun-Times, and “the grand-daddy of all Web sites” according to the Boston Globe. Yahoo Internet Life said to “make Finaid your first stop. This site offers some of the best ‘how to’ guidance on securing financial aid.”
The site has won awards from the College Board, the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students and the American Institute for Public Service.
