Why uAspire?

I am inspired by the work of uAspire to assist students in finding an affordable path to not only start, but complete their college education. uAspire empowers students to make smart financial decisions through education and support and truly sets them up for success. I’m excited to be a part of an organization that makes such individual and community-wide impact.
