Up$tart bundles applications for social benefits—Pell Grants, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program—in order to generate income for poor students, increasing their likelihood of graduating from college. In addition to increasing student income, Up$tart indirectly raises significantly revenues for financially stressed institutions of higher education. Because poverty afflicts minorities of color disproportionately, Up$tart promises to accelerate the upward mobility of African American, Hispanic, and Native American students. Bundling benefit applications is also applicable for other fields of activity where silo programs impede benefit take-up rates.
