Biden Seeks Big Increase for Pell

"President Biden proposed a $2,175 increase in the maximum Pell Grant Monday in his budget proposal to Congress for fiscal 2023. That would bring the maximum annual Pell award to $8,670," Inside Higher Ed reports. 

...“'This budget proposal is a significant step in the right direction to expand access to postsecondary education to more low- and middle-income students and restore some of the purchasing power of the Pell Grant,'” said Justin Draeger, CEO and president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. “'We also applaud the president’s calls to improve customer service for federal student loan borrowers.'”
