In the United States, the student debt of the Millennial generation is at an all-time high and university dropouts are on the rise. If this trend continues the demand for college educated, skilled workers will outpace the supply dramatically.
This is why the Interchange Group supports Scholarship America, a non-profit whose mission is to make postsecondary education success possible for all students. Scholarship America is the country's largest provider of private scholarships, awarding more than $2.9 billion to 1.9 million students and spending 97% of its total budget on programs.
As a holiday gift to our clients and community, the Interchange Group is donating funds to Scholarship America. Our wish for 2013 is to help students complete their education beyond high school with manageable debt so that our communities will prosper and our economy will strengthen.
Happy New Year!
