Improving equity, access, and opportunity in education is a critical goal that requires collaboration between businesses, educational institutions, and communities. Here are some strategies that businesses can employ to actively engage in and contribute to these efforts:

  1. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programs:
    • Establish and promote CSR programs specifically focused on education. Allocate resources and funds to support initiatives aimed at improving equity, access, and opportunity in education.
  2. Partnerships with Educational Institutions:
    • Forge partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities to create programs that address the needs of underserved communities. This could include providing scholarships, mentorship programs, or supporting infrastructure development in schools.
  3. Workplace Diversity and Inclusion:
    • Prioritize diversity and inclusion within the company. Create a workplace culture that values diversity and fosters an inclusive environment. This commitment to diversity can extend to recruiting efforts, leadership development programs, and mentorship initiatives.
      • Encourage and support employees to volunteer their time and skills in educational initiatives. This could involve tutoring, career counseling, or participating in community outreach programs.

The good news is that grad students can still complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and receive federal financial aid. Filling out the FAFSA will give them access to other types of financial aid.

FAFSA eligibility depends on your citizenship status. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents can complete the FAFSA; DACA students do not qualify.

The FAFSA will ask for contact, personal and financial information to determine the type of federal aid you qualify for. After you submit the FAFSA, the federal government will determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), or the amount you can afford to pay for college every year. The lower your EFC, the more need-based aid you will receive.

Each school has its own FAFSA deadline, so visit the financial aid office’s website to figure out when the application is due. If you miss the due date, you will not be eligible for federal aid.
