On 50th Anniversary of Pell Grant Legislation, Lawmakers Want to 'Double Down' on Efforts

"Claiborne Pell is still a titan in the annals of American political history, with a rich legacy of service not only to the Rhode Island constituents he served for six terms in the U.S. Senate but also to the entire population of the country," the Newport Daily News reports

... "U.S. Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, Congressman David Cicilline and U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona joined members of the late Pell’s family, representatives of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority and local students and educators at Salve Regina University on Monday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Pell Grant and advocate for a doubling of the current maximum award."
