Student Financial Advisors (SFAN)

The Student Financial Advisors Network (SFAN) is a Professional Focus Group of ANZSSA, though any interested parties are welcome to join us for this forum.

SFAN is a community of practice for post-secondary staff working in roles that support students with financial matters.  This includes welfare officers, financial counsellors, and student advisors.  Topics of discussion typically include best practice for client work and workshop offerings, updates to student Centrelink payments, and availability of financial supports such as scholarships and bursaries.

Agenda items or topics of discussion can be emailed to, or just come along and join this informal forum.
