Responding to calls from high school guidance counselors who said they needed more than just another Web site that few have the time to read, Weaver and Leaman put together digital online recordings that feature financial aid directors from 23 Maine institutions answering frequently asked questions, ranging from, "What are your financial aid filing deadlines?" to "How does your institution integrate local merit scholarships into the financial aid award package?"

Listen to the Maine Things Considered segment.
