UCSC students look to preserve long term state aid
The Student Union Assembly (SUA) has begun a campaign to protect Cal Grants, a form of financial aid available for California college students that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed eliminating last spring.
Their campaign to protect the grant began last week as part of their “week of action” as SUA members gathered in the Baytree Plaza. They encouraged people to fill out yellow slips of paper to show their support. Members called the week “a success” and are now going into classrooms, asking people to fill out more of the paper slips. So far, they have accumulated 1,400.
