Jan. 2021 - April 2021

Join Student Voices 2021 and speak up with other Minnesota college students. Let lawmakers know how they can help.

State lawmakers need to hear what you have to say.

Advocate for the need-based grants that help one out of every three Minnesota students.

  • More than 77,000 students receive Minnesota State Grants.
  • They’re 100 percent based on financial need.
  • Students who receive these grants go to all kinds of colleges. They’re at public and private nonprofits, earning bachelor’s, associate and technical degrees.

While these grants help, the size of the grants has not kept up with what is needed. Now is the time for lawmakers to act. They can make grants larger and make more students eligible.

How you can help now

When you write a note, record a video or join a zoom call with your hometown lawmaker, you’ll make a difference.

The first step? Let us know you’re game by signing up below. Then we’ll let you know how you can get involved, including on small group calls with the legislators who represent you.

This effort is supported by 17 private nonprofit colleges and universities around the state through the Minnesota Private College Council.
