I am attending Paul Mitchell the school Boise, and while financial aid (read that small Pell grants and large loans) are covering the cost of tuition and my basic kit, there are additional costs and expenses that aren't covered.
The biggest portion of these are my basic living expenses. Rent, utilities, and gas to get to and from school are the largest part of this. Without these necessities, my success in school is doomed.
Beyond these basics, there are also additional tools that would greatly enhance my learning experience that I cannot afford. Anything above and beyond basic living expenses is going to be reinvested in these tools, an investment in my family's future by guaranteeing my ability to earn a good income, pay back my loans, and repay the generosity shown to me after graduation.
