Join me and ask Congress to ‘Double the Pell’

Double the Pell - Chancellor Khosla with students on Library Walk

Chancellor Khosla joins Associated Students President Manu Agni and students on Library Walk to ask Congress to 'Double the Pell.'

This year, the nation’s most important program for college affordability turns 50. Since it was created in 1972, the federal Pell Grant has helped low-income students pay for higher education. Unlike a loan, Pell Grants do not have to be repaid. And for many students, a Pell Grant provides a foundation of financial aid to which other aid may be added. These grants have given millions of students access to higher education, but over time its purchasing power has diminished. You can help change that.
