There are currently over $14,000,000,000 of scholarships available in this country that go unclaimed every year. That is 14 billion dollars. Yes, with a B. So long as someone makes an effort in High School, there are plenty of scholarships to get a full ride to college in this country. In addition, 42 out of the 50 state offer completely free associates degrees at community colleges for anyone who graduates High School with a 'C' average or better. Between available scholarships and the first two years completely free, there is no reason anyone should graduate with debt these days.
Doesn't the US also have the GI bill ? I know that similar options are available in Canada as well. If you have the grades you can enrol in University and the military at the same time, attend university tuition paid plus $1500/month salary. During summer/school breaks you work for the military and do your military training. Upon completion of school you do your service as an officer.

I think the problem is too many people want a gender studies degree without having to put out the effort. I think those who enter STEM or other professional programs they know they will have to put in the effort both applied and working to support it or pay for loans, but they will also get a good job when they are done.

I think more support should be made for STEM/Professional designations and all the feel good stuff should be fully funded by the student who can then use their barista salary to pay the debt.
