September 3, 2021

Koya partnered with Boston College on its Director of Financial Aid search. Our work resulted in the appointment of Ebony Marsala.

Boston College, the first institution of higher education to operate in the city of Boston, is today among the nation’s foremost universities, a leader in the liberal arts, scientific inquiry, and student formation. Boston College urges students to look inward but always to reach out—to develop their minds and talents to the fullest and use them in service to others.

A highly respected financial aid professional with 19 years of experience, Marsala was responsible for overseeing all aspects of undergraduate financial aid at Northeastern, including working directly with the school’s award recipients through a team of 19 financial aid professionals and staff, and reviewing financial models with senior leadership.

As Director of Undergraduate Aid, she earned a reputation as a problem solver, strategic thinker, and effective communicator whose efforts improved the user experience for Northeastern’s financial aid recipients.

A member of the Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Professionals, to which she was named president-elect in 2020, Marsala is also an active member of the National Association of Student  Financial Aid Administrators.

A Bronx native, she received a  bachelor of arts degree in psychology and a master’s degree in educational administration from the State University of New York,  Albany, and is pursuing a master’s degree in organizational communications from Northeastern University.
