Why uAspire?

As a first-generation college student, uAspire's mission is incredibly personal to me. I joined uAspire to empower both students and practitioners with the tools and knowledge to navigate the financial aid process. My hope is that uAspire can continue to open doors, break down barriers, and reimagine the systems that gatekeep higher education.
