Innovative Finance Developments:
Adult Promise Programs and Income-Share Agreements


Scholarship providers operate in a complex landscape where financial aid and other supports for students are needed more than ever. But what are the actual dimensions of student need today? How are states and public institutions responding? And how can scholarship providers have the greatest impact? This session will begin with an overview of the most current research on student need, including a special focus on students of color, adults, debt, and costs beyond tuition. Presenters will then provide a detailed look at innovative state and institutional practices to meet student financial needs and encourage completion.
