The Student Aid Alliance is a coalition of 66 national higher education organizations and associations fighting to increase funding for federal student financial aid programs for students from all backgrounds.
The Student Aid Alliance supports a package of proven student aid programs to help students achieve their higher education higher education goals without excessive debt. These programs include Pell grants, the campus-based programs (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants [SEOG], Federal Work-Study, and Perkins loans), Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnerships (LEAP), Federal Student Loans, Federal TRIO programs, and graduate programs.
The Alliance encourages students to get involved in the policy making process by writing letters to their representatives on higher education issues, visiting with their representative, making phone phone calls to congress, or by bringing a representative to their school. The Alliance urges these contacts to include stories of how federal student aid has made a positive difference in the student's life.
