Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities, commented on the increase of the annual Pell Grant award in H.R. 1865:
“Career Education Colleges and Universities warmly welcomes the news that the maximum Pell Grant award has been increased by $150 for the 2020-2021 school year. The action taken by President Trump’s Administration and the Congress will enable more students to access and afford career education.
“While the American economy continues to grow, there are still millions of Americans lacking in-demand skills and millions of job vacancies because employers cannot find job ready employees. Our members continue to work to address this demand and additional Pell Grant funding will ensure more students succeed.
“We hope the Congress can continue to find avenues of agreement to further education access, outcomes, and opportunities.”
