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.
Building a Stronger Wisconsin
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.
Financial Aid Provides a Way Forward
Without state student financial aid, many Wisconsin residents could not continue in college or on the path to fulfilling their dreams. 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.*
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.
