CASFAA Awards

CASFAA invites nominations for the following awards for 2022 and recipients will be announced at the conference:

Lifetime Membership

Lifetime Membership is given to a person who has made major and significant contributions to the profession over an extended period of time. Lifetime Membership awards are the highest awards CASFAA can make and should only be awarded in exceptional cases. Longevity is not, by itself, sufficient for the awarding of Lifetime Membership.

Distinguished Service

The Distinguished Service Award is given to a member of the financial aid community, government official, private citizen, or a corporation or other organization for outstanding service to the profession. CASFAA membership is not a criterion for this award. Current members of the Executive Council are ineligible for this award.

Creative Leadership

The Creative Leadership Award is given to a CASFAA member who has demonstrated, through significant leadership, innovation in the profession.

Segmental Leadership

The Segmental Leadership Award is given to a CASFAA member in each of the five segments in recognition of outstanding leadership in the segment, CASFAA, or the financial aid profession. Current members of the Executive Council are not eligible for this award. In 1994, a leadership award was created to honor leadership in the Graduate & Professional field.

Meritorious Service

The Meritorious Service Award is given to a CASFAA member in recognition of an outstanding achievement or accomplishment in the financial aid profession. To receive the award, the individual should have made either an important single accomplishment or contribution or several significant accomplishments or contributions. Current members of the Executive Council are eligible for this award.

Rookie of the Year

The Rookie of the Year Award is given to a new CASFAA member or new volunteer to CASFAA activities in recognition of the accomplishments and contributions to the association in the first year of being an Association volunteer
