Pennsylvania Student Aid Agency to Seek $40 Million Raise to Maintain Record Scholarships | New

HARRISBURG (TNS) – Hopes of keeping the state’s maximum grant for university students at the record price of $5,750 will require increased investment from the Commonwealth next year.

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency on Thursday unanimously approved a $370.8 million appropriation request for the state grant program that serves low- and lower-middle-income students. . This represents an 11.9% increase from the $331.4 million allocated this year in the state budget.
