What does it take to make it successfully through college? For a growing proportion of the nation’s students—many of whom are racial and ethnic minorities, from low-income families, or the first in their families to enroll in higher education—the answer encompasses far more than affordable tuition and decent grades.

This paper describes the higher education funding models as applied to real-life students, many of whom are racial and ethnic minorities, from low-income families, or the first in their families to enroll in higher education.
