Daniel is an economics and sociology double major who intends to pursue a Ph.D. in economics after he graduates in spring 2022. #DoublePell would help him and so many other students gain a college degree while taking on less debt, he says.
“I enrolled in college so that I could use the skills I’d learned all my life to be a more intellectual person and further my career choices,” Daniel said. “If the award had been increased before I entered college, I would have not needed to take on nearly as much debt. While I am near the end of my eligibility for the Pell Grant, doubling the max award would allow many more students from low-income families like me to pursue their own dreams and goals uninhibited by financial worry.”
