 In this weekly blog post, the Curriculum team will highlight Just One Resource from our NGPF collection that maybe doesn't get the attention it deserves. Use it this week or bookmark it for later. 

[The Resource] THE FINE PRINT: Financial Aid Package

The Gist: Students analyze two different financial aid award letters to determine which school is offering a better package. 

The Best Parts:

  • Before diving into the financial aid award letters, students can read an article and watch a short video to review what information is included in an award letter and how to read it. 
  • Students then look at two very different financial aid award letters to identify what the school is offering in financial aid and which school is offering a better package. 
  • Students answer 10 multiple choice questions based on the award letters and 1 short answer question!
