Student need continues to grow
With pocketbooks more stretched than ever, it is no surprise that students have been hard hit. As student debt and financial crisis continues to grow so does the need for scholarships and bursaries. In a 2010 survey by Studentawards Inc., it is reported that Business students were amongst the poorest, alongside Social Sciences and Nursing.
Out of 1,500 students surveyed, 76% said they will have to borrow money to fund their education. 31% of respondents said they will turn to parents and other relatives for financial help. 17% of students surveyed said they were unemployed this summer because they could not find a job. Of the 68% who reported being employed, 53% made less than $5,000. Read the full press release at Studentawards Inc. News Release.
