Support Funding for Pell Grants & Stafford Loans
Please take time to ask your Senators and Representative to support FY 2013 appropriations for the proposed maximum grant level of $5,645 per year under the Pell Grants Program to provide low-income students access to higher education and to maintain interest rates of 3.4 percent for Stafford Loans. The current educational environment stresses the importance of standards and assessments that prepare students to be college-ready. However, preparing students to be college-ready means little if they cannot afford to attend.
