Today, the average student in the US pursuing a degree in higher education will graduate more than $30,000 in debt, and won’t be able to pay it off until they’re in their forties.
With more than 700% student debt growth in the last 15 years, paying for education is daunting for most, and downright impossible for many.
It’s a $1.6T problem that is handicapping our next generation.
The average graduate today is far less likely to start a small business, seek the highest impact careers with the most potential, buy a home, save meaningfully, or start building a family.
Students dreaming of conducting cancer research, becoming teachers, working in underserved communities, or starting the next great company are giving up on their goals in the face of the seemingly insurmountable mountain of loan payments.
