BUILDING A STRONGER WISCONSIN
The Power of Financial Aid is a joint partnership between the United Council of UW Students, the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, Wisconsin Student Government, and the Wisconsin Technical College District Boards Association.
An investment in student aid is an investment in everyone’s future. That future means fulfilling dreams. That’s the Power of Financial Aid.
Show that power—sign the petition to Wisconsin’s Governor and legislators. Support state student financial aid programs that help Wisconsin students at Wisconsin colleges and universities.
Without state student financial aid, many of you and your friends could not continue in college or on the path to fulfilling your dreams. Yet in 2011-12, Wisconsin turned away 76,000 students because of a lack of funding for student financial aid, all while student need is exploding. From 2008-09 to 2009-10, there was a 54 percent increase in the number of students who, because of economic conditions, indicated their expected family contribution toward their college expenses would be $0*.
Support state student financial aid programs—sign the petition, then share it on Facebook and Twitter and ask your friends and family to sign it too. The petition will be shared with Wisconsin legislators and Wisconsin’s Governor so we can show the Power of Financial Aid in Wisconsin.
