If you care about keeping college affordable for students, you can help.
In 2013 hundreds of college students wrote letters and met with their legislators; in the end, policymakers increased State Grant funding by about $50 million. As a result, more students are eligible to receive State Grants and the grants are larger.
If we want this support for college students to continue, policymakers need to keep hearing about it.
Steps parents and other supporters can take:
- Sign up to join Advocates for Minnesota Student Aid. You will receive brief updates and occasional requests to reach out to legislators.
- Write an e-mail thanking policymakers for recently helping college students by increasing State Grant awards; visit mnstudentaid.org/action-alerts and click on the current alert. (By taking this step, you will join Advocates for Minnesota Student Aid.)
