The Pell Grant financial aid program has allowed millions of moderate- to low-income young Americans attend college. Rep. Paul Ryan and the Republicans in Congress recently proposed a %5.7 billion cut to Pell Grant funding. This cut will have far-reaching, negative impacts on students who otherwise cannot afford the cost of higher education.
In response to this atrocious proposal, the Old Dominion University Young Democrats will launch a campaign tomorrow encouraging young Democrats to call Senators Warner and Webb. Encourage our senators to vote NO to any cuts of Pell Grant funding!
