Film Series Explores the History of Federal Financial Aid

Please join us a screening of the "Looking Back to Move Forward: A History of Federal Financial Aid" on Monday, November 3, 2014.  Lumina Foundation and the Institute for Higher Education Policy invite you to view the first installment of a Mini-Documentary Film Series on the historical and political context of federal financial aid.

In partnership with IHEP, Lumina has produced several films which discuss the origins of some of the Title IV financial aid programs.  The films feature the historical perspectives of individuals who were directly involved in the policy discussions that led to the creation of these programs.  We hope you can join us for a viewing of the first two of the mini-films in this series and engage in a discussion with experts afterward about what we can learn from the history of these programs as we think about new models of student financial support moving forward.

A Stronger Nation 2017 report uses Census data to track progress in degree attainment at several levels – nationally, in metropolitan areas, in all 50 states, and down to the county level. It also contains national data and state-specific estimates that show attainment of high-quality postsecondary certificates.
