    as many as 2 2 million new workers with college degrees but on our current trajectory there will be a shortage of 3 million workers who need an associate s degree or higher After years of stagnant funding that failed to keep pace with college costs Congress provided desperately needed changes and funding increases to the Pell Grant program Pell Grants grew from serving just over 5 million students annually in 2006 to now over 9 million students in 2011 The program increased yearly funding from almost 13 billion a year in 2006 to almost 36 billion a year 2011 through the passage of a series of high profile pieces of legislation The maximum Pell Grant grew from 4 310 to 5 550 The recent victory came at a cost In order to make the deal to protect the Pell Grant key benefits were scaled back on graduate student loans In affect some students now face a higher debt burden in order to maintain grant aid As students head back to school this fall we have to be vigilant The fight over cutting the federal budget continues and we can expect more shortsighted proposals to scale back student aid Affordable Higher Education Higher Ed Add new comment About Us Our Leadership Our Mission Accomplishments IU Chapter Get Involved Action Center Campaign Resources Start a PIRG Chapter Full Time Jobs Campus Internships Volunteer on Campus Campaigns 21st Century Transportation Affordable Higher Education Democracy Hunger and Homelessness Make Textbooks Affordable New Voters Project Stop Subsidizing Obesity Student Consumer Action Network Sustainable U Newsroom Latest Updates Blog News Releases PIRG in the News Reports Internships Work on important issues learn valuable skills get hands on experience and make a difference Get Info Students in Action Like Us Follow Us RSS Contact Blog Posts
