NAICU LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO FUND FEDERAL STUDENT AID PROGRAMS

Sep 18, 2023

This summer, the House proposed to eliminate funding for Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) while protecting the Pell Grant maximum and the Senate proposed cutting FWS and SEOG each by $10 million while providing a $250 increase to the Pell Grant maximum.  With budget decisions front and center in Congress once again, NAICU launched an advertising campaign encouraging Congress to fund the federal student aid programs. The campaign calls on Congress to reject the proposed cuts to FWS and SEOG and instead fund critical student aid programs to invest in America’s future.
