Advocates for Minnesota Student Aid

AMSA logoIf you think that state and federal financial aid are important in keeping Minnesota colleges affordable for low- and middle-income families, there’s a way to show your support.

Join Advocates for Minnesota Student Aid (AMSA) and speak up for strong financial aid programs for students at all colleges around the state – two-year, four-year, public and private. Anyone is welcome to join. Members include parents, students, alumni, faculty and staff from local colleges and universities.

When you join AMSA, two things will happen:
·         You’ll receive periodic updates about what policymakers are considering and doing about financial aid programs like the Minnesota State Grant program.
·         You’ll receive occasional suggestions about things you can do, like sharing your story and e-mailing legislators.

About one in four students in our state receive a Minnesota State grant. As an AMSA member, you can help policymakers understand that an investment in this program is critical for all of Minnesota, not just college students. When low- and middle-income students are able to afford college, the whole state benefits. Join AMSA today.
