This help is made possible by the Memphis Talent Dividend (MTD), one of several Leadership Memphis action initiatives that focus on increasing college attainment. MTD involves more than 100 organizations working together to increase the number of college graduates in the Memphis metro areas.
“Difficulty in completing the federal student aid forms has been identified as a major barrier to many students pursing college entry,” said Fred Turverey, Director of Memphis Talent Dividend. “About 5,500 students completed FAFSA applications in 2012. The goal is to increase that number to more than 6,600 in 2013.”
