What you can do now

This will be a busy election year and you may get the chance to talk to legislative candidates who want to represent you. Be sure to tell candidates to prioritize financial aid and make a commitment to invest more in the State Grant program!

Minnesota will be home to a competitive race for governor and every member of the Minnesota House is up for reelection. Find out who is running in your legislative district and tell them that you care about financial aid. All Minnesota students should be able to go to the college that provides the best fit. The State Grant program gives students an incentive to stay in our state and helps them avoid additional student debt. It’s the best way state legislators can help college students across the state.

Tell us what you’re hearing. If candidates are talking about financial aid, private colleges, the State Grant program or higher education generally, we want to know! Email us at info@mnstudentaid.org.
