Higher Education Associations Seek More Support for Graduate Schools from Congress

Inside Higher Education reports that, in a letter sent to key U.S. senators and representatives on Monday, a number of higher education associations asked for more congressional support for graduate schools. According to Inside Higher Education, the letter "noted recent decisions by Congress that have made graduate education more expensive, including elimination of in-school interest subsidies for grad students and higher origination fees on Grad PLUS loans. Lawmakers also removed graduate eligibility for the Perkins Loan program before its expiration in 2017."

Associations who signed onto the letter include the American Council on Education, the American Educational Research Association, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, EDUCAUSE, NASPA, the Student Veterans of America, and several others. Read the full letter here.
