With financial hardship at home, more students seek college aid

“In the last 18 months, we’ve had over 500 students who have filed financial aid appeals, often because of layoffs, changes in working hours, reduced overtime, more difficulty finding summer jobs,” said Judy Dobai, associate vice president for enrollment management at Fairfield University. Fairfield, a school of about 3,300 undergraduates, boosted its financial aid budget by about $6 million in the past two years, she said.
