Pell Grants Aren’t Welfare: Tell Us Your Story
The future of America and its working-class students are in danger.
As Washington weighs cuts to the federal budget, the Pell Grant program is on the chopping block. Pell is the federal aid program that fuels the future of hard-working students nationwide. Nearly 10 million Americans depend on Pell Grants to enroll in and complete college. If the maximum grant is cut or eligibility requirements for the program change, fewer working families will be able to send their children to college at a time when our economy needs more college graduates, not fewer.
Congress needs to hear how Pell Grants keep the promise of a college education — and all that it offers — alive for hard-working students.
Whether you or someone you know has benefited from a Pell Grant (or if you simply support keeping college opportunity open to all), we invite you to share your story. Help us put a face on the fight to Save Pell.
