NEWS FROM NASFAA

In just a few months, Pell Grants will be widely available to eligible incarcerated students who were previously restricted from accessing grants due to a federal ban implemented in 1994. As students and institutions prepare for this change, new research highlights the experience of incarcerated students with the Second Chance Pell Experiment and gives recommendations on how to improve the program.

A new analysis out of The Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS) examines a different way to measure the value of a college education, centering the metric on race. The analysis introduces the Race and Economic Mobility (REM) metric, which measures several economic indicators based on the distribution of racially marginalized students.
