Deeper in Debt: Women and Student Loans
A new study conducted by the American Association of University Women estimates that women hold almost two-thirds of the country’s $1.3 trillion dollars in student debt. Women incur larger student loan debt than men, and after graduation earn an average of 22% less than their male counterparts. These factors and others leave women with less disposable income, which takes an average of two years longer to pay off student loan debt.

To learn more about women and student loans, and to explore solutions, AAUW Pennsylvania, AAUW State College and the Penn State Financial Literacy & Wellness Center will host a panel discussion on this topic. Federal and State funding of higher education, financial aid issues, academic choices, pay gaps in gender and race, and advocacy ideas for individuals will be discussed. This program will empower women to make life-changing choices that could dramatically affect their financial future. Join us!
