Financial Support Models Challenge Launched

College affordability—the real or perceived ability to pay for college—is a major barrier facing students who wish to pursue a postsecondary degree or certificate. There are college financing and aid programs available, but not all are well targeted and many students are not able take advantage of them because they are unaware of all the options or they find the process difficult to navigate. Lumina Foundation desires a model for a new student financial support system that will enable greater participation by lowering the barriers to completing postsecondary education.

Challenge deadline is Nov. 20, 2014
