Christopher L. Eisgruber, President, Princeton University writes: One of my highest priorities is to increase the number of low-income and middle-income students getting college degrees, both at Princeton and nationally. A college education is a rocket-booster for these tremendous young people, who for too long have been underrepresented at Old Nassau and many of our peers. We need their talent on our campus and in our country!

Sian Beilock, President, Barnard College writes: Pandemic-fueled financial setbacks have hit women much harder than men, which should serve as a call to action for colleges and universities to do whatever it takes to provide the tools needed to close the financial fluency gap and work toward economic gender parity so our students can go out and change the world.

Doubling Pell Grants Would Be a Modern GI Bill to Boost the Economy

Doubling Pell Grants Would Be a Modern GI Bill to Boost the Economy

Tania Tetlow, President, Loyola University New Orleans writes: During this crisis, we are hurtling in the opposite direction. 2020 created a similar dramatic shift in the percentage of Americans going to college, but this time for the worse. The best available data estimates that freshman enrollment declined by about 13 percent in fall 2020, and that figure is even higher for students hoping to be the first in their family to make it that far.

Why Doubling the Pell Grant is Good Public Policy

Why Doubling the Pell Grant is Good Public Policy

Linda LeMura, President, Le Moyne College writes: As our nation emerges from the shroud of fog left by the COVID-19 pandemic, our country will focus on repairing relationships, rebuilding our nation, and setting our economy back to recovery. One way we will do this is by supporting investments in our people and ensuring greater access to higher education. There is no single program that has done more for low-income students than the Pell Grant. The federal infrastructure exists to help more students, which is why I am calling on Congress to double the Pell Grant.
