Although many independent schools are seeing a diversification in their student bodies, existing structures, such as financial aid awards, have not been modified. In addition, many financial-aid managers in independent schools have 0-5 years of experience in student financial aid. This handbook profiles the overall step-by-step process for financial-aid management as implemented by Riverdale Country School in Bronx, New York. The handbook also uses information gathered through interviews with knowledgeable financial aid officers at schools affiliated with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Contents include a guideline for time management, a review of the application process, a description of the procedures for determining financial need and calculating awards, and a description of areas related to financial aid. A financial-aid timeline and an annotated bibliography are included. Appendices contain sample worksheets, letters, and forms from Riverdale Country school. Contains 11 references. (LMI)
