Statement by ACE President Ted Mitchell: ACE Joins Nearly 1,200 Institutions and Organizations Calling on Congress to Double the Maximum Pell Grant
March 25, 2021

​“I am proud that ACE today is joining with nearly 900 individual colleges and universities and more than 300 organizations to urge Congress to bring an affordable, high-quality college education within reach for all students by doubling the maximum Pell Grant.

This important investment will drive economic recovery, help address racial and economic inequities in college completion rates, and increase overall educational attainment. Doubling the maximum Pell Grant is something Congress can agree to on a bipartisan basis as a fast and effective way to bolster opportunity for millions of students.

We look forward to working with members of the House and Senate and the Biden administration to enact this important public policy initiative.”
