Perea Supports Cal Grants at Fresno Pacific University Event

Perea Supports Cal Grants at Fresno Pacific University Event

 

 

FRESNO-On Friday, Assemblymember Henry T. Perea (D-Fresno) will join students, faculty and staff at Fresno Pacific University (FPU) in a public display of support for the Cal Grant scholarship program. 

 

“I support the thousands of Cal Grant recipients who aspire for a better future by attending private, non-profit universities and I am fighting to reverse the proposed 11 percent Cal Grant cut in the 2014-15 budget,” said Assemblymember Perea. “Low-income Californians enrolling in private, non-profits are being targeted for cuts at a time when many of them are being turned away from the UC and CSU systems for lack of space. We should not deny them the opportunity to get a college degree because they cannot attend a public university.”
