The JOBS Act was reintroduced in February and would extend federal Pell Grant eligibility to students enrolled in certain short-term programs, but the legislation excludes for-profit institutions. “Preventing students at all proprietary institutions from participating in short-term Pell will limit valuable opportunities for low-income and minority students,” the Democrats wrote in the letter. “We believe Congress should support access to all high-quality programs, including those offered at proprietary institutions.”
