About the Entry
For promising students at one low-income high school, the road to college is marked by hope, frustration, and limited choices.
Comments from the Judges
“A compelling series on a long-neglected issue. The stories could easily have become overly technical, but Eric Hoover has a knack for finding vivid stories and telling them compassionately.”
“This three-part package is a deep dive into the problem that low-income students face in financing a college education — and they go far beyond coping with the FAFSA.”
