Parents needed for input on Paying for College tool

March 10, 2021

Abt Associates and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) want to hear from parents and relatives who have taken out loans to pay for a family member’s college education or are thinking about doing so.

Participants will be asked about:

  • Factors influencing whether and how to contribute to their student’s education
  • Information sources they used to learn about and evaluate college contribution options
  • Information they wish they had known before contributing
  • The impact of college contributions on family finances, relationships, future plans, and quality of life

These interviews and listening sessions will help CFPB develop an educational tool to inform family members of their options for financially supporting students.

Participants will receive a gift card ($75 for an interview and $25 for a listening session) to thank them for their time and insights.

Call 888-839-8521 or email FamilyCollege@abtassoc.com for more information.
