Cleveland Education Fund

Embrace Relief will be establishing a scholarship fund for college students. As many of you know, Embrace Relief is dedicated to assisting our local communities in need and helping those who are financially struggling

The cost of higher education in the United States is incredibly high and it only continues to rise, making it even more difficult for a growing number of people. According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2013–2014 school year was $30,094 at private colleges, $8,893 for state residents at public colleges, and $22,203 for out-of-state residents attending public universities. For the majority of students, the only way to attend college is through securing student loans which often times only cover the cost of tuition.
