Funding U provides college completion loans to low and moderate income 4-year college students who need small dollar funds ($3000-10,000) to bridge a last gap of funding needed to remain in school full time and graduate. We are passionate about removing the financial barrier to college completion. We - and the 200 students to whom we have made loans - are working to improve the statistics that show only 1 in 4 low income students who start college will be able to complete it.
