Rally Pushes Increased Funding For Tuition Grants To Help Poor Students Go To College


Colleges and universities around the state are echoing Governor Pat Quinn’s call for more money in a program that provides tuition assistance to low-income students. 

 

Quinn wants to add $50 million to the program next year… and to ultimately double the current $373 million allocation over five years. 

 

A rally at the Statehouse Tuesday was aimed at persuading lawmakers that the additional money would be a solid investment in the state’s future… giving many poor students their best, and perhaps, only shot at going to college.
