Most Americans agree that a college degree is a good investment in their future. However, there is an ongoing concern that the increasing cost of college is pricing more and more Americans out. Ed Trust believes in making colleges and universities more affordable and ultimately debt free. From highlighting the affordability gaps in the total cost of attendance to our calls for doubling the Pell Grant, our goal is to make state and institutional leaders aware of the actions that need to be taken so that college students can earn a college degree without it turning into a debt sentence.
