For over 50 years, Ascendium has been on a mission to make learning beyond high school available to everyone. Richard George, Ascendium’s Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, explained: “Our investment in students via Stride’s ISA fund is another step along our journey to help every student realize their potential. Ascendium remains committed to ensuring equality of opportunity across higher education, and we are excited to double down on our commitment to serving students from underserved backgrounds who are frequently locked out of the private student loan market.”

George added: “ISAs continue to be an outcomes-driven tool to make higher education accessible for students from diverse backgrounds. After reviewing the ISA landscape, Stride Funding’s reputation as an innovative and responsible industry leader became apparent, and we are excited to partner given their mission alignment and focus on creating access, affordability, and a seamless student experience.”
