Getting Funds into Latinx Hands
Money is a sensitive topic, and we all know how easy it can become the only thing on your mind. And that’s especially true for college students—getting through higher education means constantly thinking, worrying, and stressing how to afford it. According to statistics, 70 percent of college students reported feeling stressed about their finances.
Nearly half of Latino students are the first in their family to go to college. And just under half of them were eligible for federal Pell Grants, money only given to those with a high financial need. In contrast, just one in five white students were first-generation, and about one in three qualified for Pell Grant money
