Why uAspire?

Both the adversity our students are faced with and perseverance and joy with which they approach life is astounding. uAspire is serving students for whom the potential expense of college could be profoundly long-lasting. Several of our students are intent on using their degrees to give back meaningfully in their communities, something that may not otherwise be possible if they were saddled with college debt or without a college degree.
