Institute for College Access and Success Inc.

Oakland, California



The Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS) is a policy and research organization focused on financial aid's role in supporting college enrollment, affordability and completion, especially for low-income and community college students. This grant will give TICAS the flexibility to respond to new policy developments while simultaneously pursuing its strategic agenda, which includes informing improvements in financial aid policy, exposing proposals harmful to students and their families, and building public awareness of the wide-ranging implications of rising student debt levels.
