Discussion Groups and Mailing Lists

Newsgroups

soc.college.financial-aid is the only newsgroup dedicated to the discussion of financial aid issues (both undergraduate and graduate). Topics discussed include grants, scholarships, fellowships, loan programs, work-study, international student aid, and updates on current changes to financial aid programs. This is an unmoderated newsgroup, so the quality of the information posted to the newsgroup varies considerably.

The Student Financial Aid FAQ is posted once a month on the 13th of the month to the newsgroup.

To search for financial aid information in all Usenet newsgroups, use DejaNews, a free web-based searchable index to newsgroups.

Forums and Bulletin Boards

The Project on Student Debt's forum focuses on discussion of current trends and policies related to student loans and student debt. Topics include student debt and its impact on individuals and society, ways to reduce the burdens that student loan debt places on families, the effectiveness of loan programs as a tool for college access, and how the loan programs could be improved at the federal level. This forum is not focused on practical, consumer-oriented advice about the payment, choice, or administration of loans.
