Call Congress Day and Legislative Action Days at Home

 Legislative Action Days at Home

The goal is to have graduate and professional students call Congress about the PROSPER Act at the same time that our Director of National Affairs and other members of the GA will be in DC meeting with legislators.

We’re calling our congress representatives about the effects of the proposed higher education reauthorization act – the PROSPER ACT and its impact on higher education. There are many provisions in the proposed law which will adversely impact graduate and professional students, and the ones of most concern to us are:

● The elimination of Grad Plus loans

● The elimination of Public Service Loan Forgiveness

● The elimination of work study programs for graduate students

● The preservation of loan interest rates that discriminate against graduate-professional students

● And, provisions that adversely affect the Clery Act.

Here’s the MU GPC Call Script- PROSPER
