"For over 150 years, UC Berkeley has helped low income, immigrant, or disadvantaged families achieve upward mobility.  For an immigrant student like me, this was a gift. The financial demands on today's students are higher than ever, so I support Florian's innovative approach to help Berkeley students afford college."

How it Works

Florian is a new way to pay for your education and expenses during school, without taking on loans or credit card debt.

Get up to $30K per semester for:

Loan Repayments


Living Expenses

Housing Costs

School Materials

Step One
Let us know how we can support you.

Florian helps with expenses, tuition, and loan repayments, so you don’t have to worry about financial stress.

Step Two
Receive your funding and mentorship.

Focus on your education, not on its expenses. Work with Florian’s alumni community to accelerate your career.

Step Three
Pay back only when you've landed a great job.

With Florian, you pay back a percentage of your income upon working full-time, so you only repay what you can afford.

"Paying my rent bill and lowering my debt have always been tough for me, so I've had to balance work and classes to make ends meet. Thanks to Florian, I was able to reduce the hours I was spending at my part-time job, pay off some of my loans, and focus on my education instead!"

"As a UCB '84 Computer Science graduate who went on to run a successful software company, I appreciate the value of a Cal education. But as the father of UCB '12 graduate, I know that the price of a Cal education has grown out of reach for many. As soon as I heard what Florian was doing - investing in students as a smarter way of funding college education - I was sold."

financial aid Reimagined
Florian is reinventing the way students pay for their education.

Pay back what you can afford

  • Your repayment is tied to your income, so you pay less when you make less.

  • There is a cap on total payments, so you avoid overpaying.

  • You don’t owe anything in years when your salary is below $40K.

Unburden your parents

  • Have your funding be based on your future potential, not your parents’ income or credit score.

  • Use Florian to pay off Parent PLUS loans and fund tuition and expenses.

Avoid loans and credit card debt

  • Steer clear of a cloud of debt hanging over you and interest accruing.

  • Don't let financial barriers get in the way of your education.

Save money with Florian

  • You can save with Florian if you have PLUS loans, private loans, or credit card debt.

  • Repay these loans using Florian, in addition to covering expenses and tuition.
