Education Aid Is Here To Provide Students and Graduates with the Financial Support They Need to Succeed!
Education Aid changes the lives of students and graduates around the country by providing them with the financial support they need to obtain and complete their education. This is accomplished by alleviating their financial burdens and debt obligations through two Support Programs; the Support a Student Scholarship Program and the Student Loan Assistance Program. Many disadvantaged students do not have the financial resources to pay for non-tuition related expenses and ultimately end up dropping out of school. After school, many graduates cannot afford to make their student loan payments and are forced to go into default. Education Aid’s Support Programs identify these individuals, and provide them with the financial support they need to complete their degrees and reduce their risk of default.
Here Are The Facts:
- Lack of Financial Support is the Number One Reason Students Drop Out of College!
- Only 4 out of every 10 students who enter a higher education institution in the United States will graduate in 4 years.
- To make matters worse, approximately 75% of the students who do end up dropping out will never receive a college degree.
- Nearly half of today’s college students do NOT receive any help to pay for school from parents or other relatives.
- 1 out of 3 college students who receive no financial help from family report the cost of textbooks and other fees besides tuition, as having a significant effect on them financially.
- More than half of students who drop out of college report “needing to work” as a major reason why.
Here Is The Solution:
Since lack of financial support and a need to work are major reasons why students are dropping out of college, then a successful approach to preventing student attrition needs to do the following:
- Cover the financial obligations students have that are not covered by typical financial aid.
- Limit a students need to work to support themselves.
- Create an environment for that student where they can spend more time focusing on their education and less time worrying about paying their bills.
