Meet the Scholarships & Financial Aid Services Team

Maria Rebecchi

Director, Scholarships & Financial Aid Education​

About Me:

Understanding financial aid can be the difference in a student making a smart college choice that will leave him or her on solid financial footing upon graduation.
My personal experience informs my work because, like many of the students I advise, I am an immigrant and I was a first-generation college student. I know first hand how important it is to have the right guidance and support when trying to access and afford post-secondary education.
My professional experience spans over 28 years working in financial aid offices and nonprofit organizations always focused on college affordability.
Learning financial aid is like learning a new language. I hope that the materials we share in this hub will help you become fluent in this very important language and help you make financially sustainable decisions.

Trang Tran

Program Officer, Scholarships & Financial Aid Education

About Me:

My name is Trang, I am from Tacoma, WA. I attended Lincoln High School and am an alumni of CSF's Achiever's program. I attended Gonzaga University and graduated with my degree in sociology. I have a deep passion for educational access and justice, which is why I do this work.
As a first generation college student myself, there is so much I wish I would have known looking back at my understanding of financial aid while applying to colleges during high school or even while in college. I can attest that learning financial aid is like learning a new language, there are so many unfamiliar moving parts that it can not only be overwhelming, but also can impact students far down the road.
I do this work because I believe it is vital for students to have the knowledge to make sound decisions that may impact their futures and I personally love meeting and supporting students and families through their educational journeys.
