Supercommittee Deciding Fate of Pell Grants

It’s up to us to fight for them… NOW!

Six U.S. senators and six members of the U.S. House of Representatives — who make up what’s known as the Supercommittee — face a Nov. 23 deadline to cut the deficit by a staggering $1.5 trillion.  Pell Grants help millions earn their way into the middle class and strengthen our economy, yet Pell is a prime target for crippling cuts.

We cannot balance the budget on the backs of hard-working students.  Tell the Supercommittee to SAVE PELL. Do it today! 

Once you’ve voiced your opinion to the Supercommittee members, tell your friends about the need to protect Pell.

Cutting Pell now would cut short the college careers of millions of students and hurt our nation’s economy.

In a few minutes, you can contact Congress and spread the word. Small actions by thousands will make a huge difference for low-income students and the future of our country.

We can’t sit back and trust that our legislators will do the right thing. Join us today in fighting back.
