Madison, WI

Info | Agenda

Dear Student Financial Aid Research Network (SFARN) Community,

The 39th Annual Student Financial Aid Research Network (SFARN) Conference will be held in person on July 14-15, 2022. SFARN Conference is the prime venue for leading financial aid researchers to network, seek input, and share expertise with colleagues from colleges and universities, state and federal agencies, membership associations, and other non-profit organizations. The Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, in collaboration with the Student Aid Reference Desk, Student Success Through Applied Research (SSTAR) Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and The Trellis Company will host this year’s conference.

The conference will consist of formal research presentations, poster presentations, and a policy symposium. We are encouraging this networking event for practitioners who focus on new and recently completed research on student aid issues such as federal policy changes, college food insecurity, student loan debt, low-income or non-traditional access, and the overarching theme of how students and their families are paying for college.

The conference price rate is $295.00, which includes two meals during the conference period. SFARN participants will have a special hotel rate of $179.00 at the Hilton Garden Inn Madison Downtown. There is a special conference rate of $100.00 for graduate students who want to present and/or attend the conference (proof of student I.D. required upon registration).

Please register for the 39th Annual SFARN Conference by July 14th here.
