Congress needs to hear why student aid is important to you, your community and America’s future.
“I was raised by a single mother, and both my brother and I are in college. Last year I had federal work study but they cut it this year. That’s made it a lot more difficult for my family to pay for college, but we’re managing somehow.”
-Miya, University of Maryland, College Park
What’s the latest on student aid?
The U. S. House of Representatives wants to enact the PROSPER Act, which will cut $15 billion from federal student aid that helps millions of students go to college each year. This will result in making college more expensive. Congress needs to reject this proposal, which would:
- Eliminate Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
- Eliminate subsidized loans
- Eliminate Public Service Loan Forgiveness
- Eliminate graduate PLUS loans
