CFPB's Your Financial Path to Graduation Tool
November 30, 2021 @ 2:00 PM

We invite you to join the Eastern Association Student Financial Aid Administrators and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for a free webinar where we will explore how the CFPB’s Your Financial Path to Graduation Tool (Grad Path) can help students create a plan to pay for college. Additionally, we’ll discuss how the School of Public Health at George Washington University has been able to successfully pilot the tool. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.

Leissan Sadykova has over 10 years of financial aid experience focusing on fair and consistent awarding policies. She has worked at various universities including state and private, non-profit universities. While at George Washington University’s Milken School of Public Health, Leissan piloted the Grad Path Tool for all graduate programs within the school. Leissan has joined the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to continue working on the Grad Path Tool and facilitating the adoption of the tool at other colleges and universities. Leissan holds Bachelor degrees in International Affairs, Economics, and French from the University of Nevada, Reno and a Master’s degree in Diplomacy and Military Studies from Hawaii Pacific University.

Brian Stone serves as a Policy Analyst for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Previously, he worked as a program manager for a D.C. area financial education non-profit. While there, he managed a matched savings program for 100 foster care youth and provided financial education services for low- and moderate-income individuals. As a part of his previous employment, he also reviewed credit reports with clients, created actionable budgets, and provided staff financial wellness trainings for the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency.
