 Two of the most difficult questions about college - How much student aid will I get? and What will college really cost me? - were answered for nearly 11,000 low-income students participating in the new Access for All™ program, which provided a combination of services that researchers recently identified as key to increasing how many low-income students attend college - individualized assistance preparing the federal student aid application (FAFSA) and insight into their aid eligibility.

Sponsored by StudentAid.com and student loan guarantor USA Funds, the Access for All program offered each student free FAFSA preparation and a College Cost & Planning Report™, which calculated and compared their aid eligibility, net prices, and the out-of-pocket costs for six colleges of their choice from among 6,500. All Access for AllTM participants came from households with an income of less than $40,000.

LOW-INCOME, RURAL STUDENTS ARE CHANGING THEIR FUTURES THROUGH kid-FRIENDLy RTTT-D PROJECT IN KENTUCKY

Kids drive own learning with input on WIN Learning’s Career Exploration Mobile App development Kingston, Tenn. – May 20, 2015 – As the school year ends, many students in low-income rural areas are left feeling that their time in class hasn’t brought them any closer to ever going to college or getting beyond a minimum wage job. However, students in north central and south central Kentucky are plotting their career paths and even finding the grants, scholarships and other funds to pursue their paths, thanks to the efforts and initiatives of the kid-FRIENDLy (Kids-Focused, Responsible, Imaginative, Engaged, Determined to Learn) Project (http://www.kidfriendlyky.com), a program funded in 2012 by the largest Race To The Top-District (RTTT-D) grant awarded.
