Reinstating Pell for Incarcerated Students: A Primer for Texas Advocates
Correctional education programs are an essential strategy for helping formerly incarcerated individuals to re-enter the workforce, re-integrate into society, and break the cycles of incarceration and poverty. Now, after changing a law that prevented people in prison from using Pell Grants to pay for college for the past 25 years, the federal government is poised to give incarcerated people a second chance at college opportunity.

Join us on Thursday, May 19 at 4pm CST to learn from a diverse group of Texas leaders, including justice-impacted students, about the magnitude of this moment, what’s happening in our state, and the urgent work that lies ahead to ensure access and success for all Texans who stand to benefit from this long and hard-fought policy change.
