Finances are the #1 barrier to a college degree. Even if students have the grades to succeed, it matters little when they don’t have the finances to attend.

uAspire provides a critical service. Our singular focus is on college affordability – making college affordable for all young people who will strive for it. In a city where more than 40% of adults have a bachelor’s degree, students in Boston see the value of a college education and are eager to continue their education. When the average student loan debt surpasses $24,000, however, our students need to have a plan to make their education one that they can afford. uAspire believes that education is a right for all students – and we break down financial barriers for any student, no matter which path to college they choose to take.

Every dollar you invest in uAspire’s high school advising yields more than just an extra dollar for a student’s education. By investing in our program, your support unlocks an extra $61 in financial aid for students. Your support allows uAspire to make a meaningful impact in a student’s life – to make college an affordable reality.
