The cost of college is rising dramatically. On average, the cost for in-state students at public four-year colleges and universities increased 29% between 2006-2011; and 9% over the five years from 2011 to now. When tuition and education costs are rising far faster than incomes, education becomes prohibitive; other things take priority.
For SSO scholarship recipient, Zuleyma, it was when her mother fell ill that she put her dreams of a college education on hold. Sonia Shah Organization allowed Zuleyma to go back to school and follow her dreams by offering a college scholarship.
