Save Student Aid: Issue Update

Save Student Aid

In response to our recent action alert, more than 70 student government presidents signed a letter to Congress urging them to oppose cuts to student aid programs. Thank you to everyone who took action!

Unfortunately, the U.S. House and Senate still chose to move forward with these cuts.

  • $90 billion from Pell Grants, which support nine million low-income students;
  • $34 billion from in-school interest subsidies, which protect students from paying interest on their student loans while they’re still in school; and
  • $27 billion from programs like income-based repayment and public service loan forgiveness that provide a safety net for graduates with student debt.

However, these cuts are a long way from becoming final – and we’re going to fight them at every single turn.Read More
