Supporting Hunger in Silicon Valley Through Impactful Partnerships
The landscape for students is ever-changing. With the compound impact of both the rising cost of education and the rising costs of living, individuals and their families across our country are bearing a significant burden. One of the many results of this burden is that students are giving up food in order to pay for housing and their education. They are literally choosing between eating or reading. Our 2018 State of the Student Report showed that one in three college students find it difficult or impossible to know where their next meal is coming from and it was that research that inspired us to take action. The newly launched Chegg.org is focusing on these specific issues — issues that students have told us are the biggest concerns for them in their pursuit of higher education, because we want to show the world who the modern student really is and what challenges they face.
College affordability has gotten more attention in the 2020 presidential race than in years past, as the rising cost of college has left Americans with a collective $1.6 trillion in outstanding student debt. The Chegg/College Pulse Student Election Tracker finds that Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren lead among college students in the Democratic primary, and a new survey highlights the impact of their student debt proposals.
