Student feedback sought regarding Pell Grants
Representatives from Alabama's community colleges will be meeting with our U.S. Senators and Representatives in Washington, D.C. soon to ask for reinstatement of Year Round (Summer) Pell Grants.  

As you may know, Pell Grants are currently designed to cover full-time enrollment during 2 semesters per year.  Reinstatement of Year Round (Summer) Pell (which was discontinued several years ago) would allow students to enroll continuously, full-time if they wish, all 3 semesters - during fall, spring and summer terms.  

If you are a Pell Grant recipient, please let us know what a difference having Pell has made to you, your ability to attend college and to be successful. If you feel you would benefit from Year Round (Summer) Pell - whether it's the continuity of learning, the availability of required courses that are only offered certain semesters, the opportunity to finish sooner and start your career, or something else - please especially let us know that as well.  

Here's how to participate:

1)  Send comments by email - from a few lines to a few paragraphs - to kristen.holmes@wallacestate.edu.  Indicate "My Pell Story" in the subject line.  Be sure to include your name, hometown, and major (if decided). Feel free to also include a photo.

2)  Record your own video and send us a link - or post and tag #myPellstory @WallaceState

3)  Schedule with our office to record your video testimonial - email kristen.holmes@wallacestate.edu or call Jesse at x8361

Please be as concise as you can.  Submissions are encouraged as soon as possible and no later than March 21. 

Almost 70 percent of our students receive some sort of financial aid.  Let us share your story with the decision makers in Washington, D.C.!  There's power in numbers!
