Why uAspire?

I truly believe that a college education transforms the lives of young people across the world. Students who work hard in high school shouldn't be stopped from getting an education because of an expensive price tag. I'm inspired by the work that uAspire does through direct service, training and technical assistance, as well as state and federal policy work to remove the financial barrier to a college degree.
