ICYMI: Listen to “College Affordability Traps and Solutions” Education First Compact

By Philadelphia Education Fund Posted: May 28, 2020

The Philadelphia Education Fund is on the front lines of the college affordability issue, working closely with Philadelphia’s most vulnerable students to make their college dreams a reality. On May 21st, our Education First Compact session on “affordability traps” brought together Madeline Birkner and Jared Epler, two professionals from PEF’s College Access team, and Amanda Constable, a Citizens Bank Relationship Manager for Student Lending and former financial aid officer in higher education.

If you missed it, you can listen to a recording for their advice and strategies that students can employ to weigh their educational financing options and make informed choices.
