In 2003, the founders of StuFund came across some startling statistics. Tuition costs increase an average of 7 percent each year, about three times as much as an average year’s inflation. More than 75 percent of students who do not go to college would have done so had money not been an issue. Over 300,000 students each year choose colleges beneath their academic potential because, without access to loans, they couldn’t afford tuition. These statistics were especially applicable to minority and low-income families. After taking a look at the problem, we decided to do something about it.
StuFund is our answer. It is an educational loan originator and knowledge center for students and families who want simple, straightforward guidance through the complex financial aid system. The first minority-owned student loan enterprise, StuFund is built around the philosophy that each and every student, regardless of race, national origin, religion, sex, marital status, age or disability, can and should have access to higher education. It’s our mission to do everything we can to make sure this happens. We believe that if a student has the desire to pursue a college degree, they should be able to find the means.
To that end, we have partnered with high school counselors, college admission boards, community organizations, and private companies to make sure we are there when you need us.
