Believe in Students

College is a main route out of poverty, a cornerstone in the building of a great society, and the key hiring prerequisite of sophisticated employers.  But far too many students are facing poverty during college, keeping them from completing degrees. Financial aid falls well short of today’s prices and many college students do not have their basic needs met:  a place to live, good food to eat, transportation to and from school.  At Believe in Students, we agree with researchers at Temple University: it’s time to stop being polite and get real about what this means for students and for all of us. This is #RealCollege. Believe in Students is the nation’s only non-profit organization focused exclusively on supporting college students’ living expenses. We develop and support innovative, sustainable and effective solutions that can scale to meet the widespread demands.
