Student Aid Commission tries to save Cal Grants for low-income students

SACRAMENTO, June 2 (PRNewswire-USNewswire) -- In an effort to stop Governor Schwarzenegger's proposal to eliminate California's system of financial aid for low-income students, the California Student Aid Commission (Commission) asked the legislature to consider alternatives to save the Cal Grant program.

Commission Chair Barry Keene stated: "Eliminating one of the most successful programs in the history of California would require the future design and consideration of a new program. We should not lose the half-century of experience with Cal Grants. A generation of young people of working age without adequate knowledge and skills would be intolerable."
