Title:Promoting educational opportunity: The Pell Grant program at community colleges
Organization:American Association of Community Colleges (AACC)
Short Description:In this brief, the authors examine the historical and the programmatic nature of the Pell Grant program and investigate how it has come to form trends over time. Underlying the examination is the use and importance of the program to college students, with a focus on those attending community colleges.
Annotation:The Pell Grant program is in a precarious position, given the substantial increase in the cost of the program over the past three years. There are numerous proposals and varied opinions as to how to “fix” the program with little consideration of the factors that brought the program into existence, the programmatic structure of the program, and the shifts the program has made to support the educational aspirations of all student types. In this brief, the authors examine the historical and the programmatic nature of the Pell Grant program and investigate how it has come to form trends over time. Underlying the examination is the use and importance of the program to college students, with a focus on those attending community colleges.
