As the student aid programs rapidly approach reauthorization in 2014, they continue to face severe funding and efficiency problems. With grant assistance from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through their “Reimagining Aid Design and Delivery” (RADD) project, on February 13, 2013 NASFAA released a policy brief examining the current systems of student aid with an eye towards reimagining how they could be improved in the future.

This report does not make recommendations, but rather puts forward broad policy considerations to generate discussion and debate with the goal of advancing key policy issues facing student aid.
