Yet in 2012-13, Wisconsin turned away 48,000 students because of a lack of funding for student financial aid, all while student need is exploding. The number of students applying to a Wisconsin college or university who could afford to contribute just $0 towards their higher education has increased by 152% since 2007-08.*
