Senator Successfully Fights for Student to Receive $12K in Financial Aid
BRONX, NY – Morris Park resident Isabel Mauriello no longer has to worry about how to pay for college, thanks to the efforts of State Senator Jeff Klein.
A student at Manhattanville College, Mauriello had worked hard to stay on top of the financial aid process so that she could continue her education this fall. After receiving Pell funding and Stafford loans, however, she was still $12,000 shy of meeting the full tuition costs for the upcoming year. Mauriello looked to take out a private loan from a bank, but because she was unable to secure a co-signer with adequate credit, she was continually denied.
