By the numbers
The average Black College graduate accrues $36,900 in loan debt. In 2015-2016 it took a full year longer than their White classmates for Black students to earn a bachelor’s degree. All while only 66.8 of White college grads had taken out loans compared to a staggering 85.9 Black Americans.
Making A Difference
In order to offset the systemic imbalances in equity, we must absorb the cost of studying for our Black students. To effectually insulate them from distractions. Undergirding them through the final period of academic growth. While offering them a cleaner bill of financial health when they enter the workforce.
