Why uAspire?

There are a number of obstacles young people often face in accessing and achieving the goal of a college education. While the achievement gap has been well documented, the economic gap (lack of resources as well as financially literacy) is equally as important. uAspire, in my estimation, is actively working to level the playing field for those young people and families that have historically been priced out of the education marketplace. I am excited to be at an organization that supports real students, real families, in navigating the financial aid process and thus empowering them to enter and succeed in post-secondary institutions.
