Press Statement: State’s largest group of college students ineligible for new scholarship program

July 3rd, 2013

The Governor and the Legislature’s leadership in providing significant funding for higher education in the 2013-14 budget is commendable, but more is necessary. California’s economy demands 2.3 million more educated workers than we are on track to produce and resources to significantly increase the number of spots in college for our students are needed now. Not a single talented Californian should decide against going to college because they are too poor to pay for it. California can’t afford that!
