"Fewer Minnesota high school seniors are filing for federal financial aid during the COVID-19 pandemic, a sign that students in this next class of graduates could have their college plans derailed."
The legislative agenda focuses on making college affordable, addressing racial inequities and supporting students better.
A recap of LeadMN's work over the last month.
Just in time for the holidays, Congress has come to an agreement on another Covid-19 relief package and a funding bill for the federal government. Included in these bills are major changes to FAFSA, Pell Grant eligibility, funding for higher education, and other policy and relief to help students. These changes represent some of the most significant changes to federal higher education laws in over a decade and will make college more affordable and accessible for millions of students.
Following up on our spring 2020 survey, LeadMN followed up with students on how the pandemic was impacting them. From November 24 through December 8, over 8,200Minnesota State community and technical college students responded.
Twenty students from the Minnesota State colleges and universities were nominated for the Mark M. Welter World Citizen Award. Each student will receive a $500 award.
