100+ Organizations Urge Congress to Increase Maximum Pell Award

With more than 100 groups aligned in making higher education more affordable, TICAS and partners urged Congress to increase the maximum Pell Grant award to $13,000.

Raising the maximum Pell award to $13,000 is an effective, targeted way to make college more affordable and lower student debt burdens for millions of students. A postsecondary credential or degree is an increasingly necessary gateway to economic opportunity, and a strong Pell Grant is critical to ensuring that students from all financial backgrounds can participate and grow a strong, diverse economy.
