Increase Pell Grants: A growing national movement
Nearly 1,200 colleges, universities and higher education organizations joined forces last week in urging Congress to reinvest in Pell Grants, the federal aid program that helps millions of students afford college. Among them were all 10 University of California campuses, the UC Student Association, and the UC Graduate and Professional Council.
The letter to Congress is just the latest action behind a growing national movement to ensure that college opportunity is available equally to every student who puts in the work to be college eligible.
