Student Government Presidents: Save Student Aid!

Save Student AidThe U.S. House and Senate will vote during the week of March 23rd on budget proposals that would cut $150 billion in student aid funding over the next ten years!

These budget resolutions would slash funding for Pell Grants, increase interest rates on student loans, and make other cuts that would make higher education more expensive for millions of students. (Learn more here.)

Student government presidents: please sign the letter below to Congress urging them to oppose these budget cuts.

This letter is sponsored by U.S. PIRG and the United States Student Association.

UPDATE: We submitted all of your letters to Congress, so we’re no longer collecting new letters at this time. Thank you to everyone who signed on!
