Rendell Wants More Aid, But Not For Us
Governor Rendell wants to pump $128 million into financial aid for students going to schools in the state system and community colleges.
Students whose family income is less than $100,000 would be eligible for up to $7,600 for tuition, books, fees and room and board when they enter the 14 State System of Higher Education universities and the 14 community colleges. Rendell also proposes adding $45 million in grants to current and incoming students through the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency.
In total, Rendell is pushing for an increase in aid money of approximately 25%.
None of that money will go to Penn State students, though. Students from Pittsburgh, Temple, and Lincoln are also out of luck.
