I knew that I wanted to attend the University of Connecticut and earn a degree that would allow me to pursue a career in the international realm. The Latin American Studies program at UConn allowed me that opportunity. Without the RSP Tuition Break, I would not have been able to afford the cost of this education without a large amount of debt. After graduating with about $20,000 in student loans, I was able to pay off 25% through my AmeriCorps Alumni Educational Stipend. These two programs allowed me to pay off my student loans in under 10 years.
