Ohio’s College Students Caught in Sequester Fight
"Thousands of Ohio’s neediest college students could see the federal grants and work-study jobs they are expecting next school year disappear because of automatic cuts, known as sequestration, that Congress did not take action to avoid," Dayton Daily News reports. "Colleges and universities are awaiting official information, but the estimated impact on local institutions ranges from no loss for Sinclair Community College and Urbana and Wilberforce universities to a reduction of $91,318 in grants and work-study at Cincinnati State and Technical Community College, according to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. 'There are a lot of questions, and because cuts of this scope and magnitude are really unprecedented, it could be a while yet before we get all the answers,' said Megan McClean, director of policy and federal relations for NASFAA."
