Getting accepted to a college or university is a big milestone for any student.

Having to fund that degree… well… that is another hurdle to tackle in of itself.

It’s even harder for Blacks and Latinos when the racial gap continues to persist in college attainment for them compared to white people.

Financial needs of Black people in particular are very important since they are most likely to receive financial aid and take out student loans for college.

Not to worry.
