Description

With spiraling college tuition costs, financial aid dollars decreasing, and increasing loan debt, today's students are faced with higher hurdles in pursuing their studies. Over the decade from 2000-01 to 2010-11, average published tuition and fees at public four-year colleges rose 72% after adjusting for inflation. Private four-year colleges reported a 35% increase and public two-year colleges reported a 31% increase in tuition costs, according to the College Board Advocacy and Policy Center. The most common scholarships can assist students with the emerging college fees if they are seeking in-state College or university opportunities and can meet the tight requirements of merit, but what about the students who seek non-traditional education and training or may have come short of the cut for academic achievement? Need-based scholarships have been historic in financially assisting students who seek nontraditional education and those who do not meet the academic achievement requirements. Unfortunately, according to the International Committee of the Fourth International, these need-based scholarships are steadily decreasing nationwide. The decrease in need-based scholarships is due to a decrease in state funding for scholarships as well as the fear that excelling students will choose to leave the state if offered a better option out of state. As a result, fewer students who have been affected by the financial crisis choose or are able to attend college. WECARE 4 COLLEGE!
