Pell Grants are a form of financial aid provided by the federal government to students who demonstrate financial need. However, currently, Pell Grants are only available to students pursuing traditional associate or bachelor’s degrees. A group of 15 members of the U.S. House of Representatives has written a letter to congressional leaders encouraging a change to that policy.

Congressman Burgess Owens, who serves as Chair of the Higher Education and Workforce Development Subcommittee joins the show to discuss this further.
