Raising the Pell Grant’s Profile (from the Chronicle of Higher Education)


What an incredible idea to provide the aid recipient with information about the source of their Pell Grant and what is expected of them in return. This lets them know that their fellow Americans are investing in them to go to school to hopefully become an asset to our country. I also says to the student recipient “take seriously our faith in your desire to better yourself and make us proud”!

I think that all similar aid products should also come with information about who funds the aid and what is expected back from the student. I would think that a student would be much more likely to take their commitment to obtaining an education seriously when they know the actual source of their aid funds rather than just getting a check from a nameless entity.
