In an effort to offer Alray Scholars first-rate guidance in making the most of the financial resources available to them, we’ve teamed up with the nonprofit uAspire. This Boston-based nonprofit, formerly known as ACCESS, has become a national leader in college access and affordability issues. It helps students overcome the financial hurdles standing between them and their degrees by partnering with schools and community profits like ours to provide students with free financial aid advance and advocacy services throughout the academic year, coming in the form of both one-on-one and group advising sessions. Experienced uAspire counselors will help Alray Scholars complete their all-important annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFA, forms, as well as providing other vital services. By forming strategic partnerships like this one with uAspire, we can focus on what we do best while also getting our students the resources they need to make sure they can do theirs.
