Members of Congress

Stop the Student Fiscal Cliff!  If you fail to prevent the Sequester, you will cut student aid by 6%. Over 100,000 students could lose a significant portion of their aid, and millions of students will lose some portion of their aid. 

Think about your children and your grandchildren. Do you think they should pay more for college because you didn't have the will to stop the Sequester?

Don't sacrifice the future. Today's students will be the engines of economic growth tomorrow.

Student Aid will be cut by 6% if Congress doesn't prevent the Sequester. Over 100,000 students could lose a significant part of their aid, and millions of students will lose some aid. Students receiving "the most aid" would have to pay $876 more per year for their education. It's time to tell Congress to stop taking from students. Over the last few years, students have given $35 billion to help balance the budget.
