To understand the barriers that exist in the financial aid process, Dr. Devon Graves conducted his dissertation research on financial aid verification and disbursement at a California community college. He contends that aid policies and practices carried out on community college campuses are founded in racist ideologies, which overregulate students and delay their receipt of financial aid.

Dr. Devon Lomes Graves is a Research Fellow for the Success Center at the Foundation for California Community Colleges. Dr. Graves served on two of California’s higher education governing boards - the Board of Regents (2018-19) and the Student Aid Commission.
