Letter Writing Campaign for Perkins Loan

Students in over 1700 colleges across the country receive Perkins Loan and it is in jeopardy of being cut. Perkins Loans must be renewed every seven years and are set to expire September 2015 if not renewed. This means that this loan will not be available in next semester’s package.Perkins Loan

Perkins Loans carry a fixed interest rate of 5% for the duration of the ten-year repayment period. The Perkins Loan Program has a nine-month grace period, so that borrowers begin repayment in the tenth month upon graduating, falling below half-time status, or withdrawing from their college or university.

The Vice President for Multicultural Affairs office in cooperation with the Educational Opportunity Program will be having a Letter Writing Campaign on Tuesday December 9 from 5pm-8pm and Wednesday December 10 from 7pm-9pm in the Old Union Hall. Students are strongly encouraged to come to one of the two Letter Writing Campaign events to contact our elected officials sharing our concerns and asking for their help in continuing our aid.
