Outreach & Resources

The Connecticut Higher Education Supplemental Loan Authority’s (CHESLA) mission is to help students plan, save and pay for college. We love to connect with students and schools through college fairs and financial literacy events.


We have created a Financial Aid Basics presentation to present to high school juniors and seniors.

The presentation highlights information about the FAFSA, Financial Aid Award Letter, comparing colleges financially, understanding how interest works, and more. The purpose of this presentation is to provide students and families with the information they need to go through the financial aid and paying for college process. We are available to present in seminars, classes, or events throughout the school day as well as financial aid nights geared towards parents. The presentation is about an hour long; however, we also have the ability to include curriculum based materials as well, including related worksheets and activities.

Please let us know if your school is interested in having CHESLA present. Email sreynolds@chesla.org for additional information.
