We advocate for equitable financial aid and higher education systems.
The policy team works with students, practitioners, and uAspire advisors to identify challenges students face accessing financial aid and develop advocacy priorities each year.
Through a paid fellowship, college students build advocacy skills and influence policymakers to make higher education more affordable and equitable.
Fellows are undergraduate students in California, Massachusetts, and New York, who are Pell-eligible or have DACA or TPS status. The fellowship builds a pipeline for underrepresented voices into politics and ensures policymakers are hearing directly from those most affected by policies.
