MELISSA RADEY is an Associate Professor in the College of Social Work at Florida State University. Her research interests include poverty, social support, and welfare policy with a particular interest in the inequalities unmarried and low-income mothers face in terms of education, employment, and well-being. Although she is somewhat new to examining educational outcomes, a manuscript (Radey, M., & Cheatham, L. P. (2013). Do single mothers claim their share? FAFSA completion among aid-eligible female students. Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 6, 261-275.) examines how student status (student mother, other non-traditional student, or traditional student) influences FAFSA application rates.
