House Members Urge Inclusion of For-Profits in Pell Increase

"A group of 13 Democratic members of Congress sent a letter to leaders in the House of Representatives last Friday asking them to revise a part of the Build Back Better Act that extends a boost in the Pell Grant award only to students who attend nonprofit public and private institutions," Inside Higher Ed reports. 

..."The letter referenced comments made by Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, who is not supportive of excluding for-profit students from the Pell Grant increase. Draeger said parceling funds out by institutional sector would add complexities to a financial aid system in need of simplification.
