California’s Master Plan for Higher Education has been an engine of social mobility and economic strength for the state and a masterful exemplar for our nation. With the recent restoration of Pell Grant eligibility for incarcerated students, California has an opportunity to draw from the success of the Master Plan by expanding bachelor degree granting educational opportunities for upward mobility, employment, and civic engagement to currently incarcerated students.
Join the Michelson 20MM Foundation, on Tuesday, March 23rd, to discuss what federal Pell Grant restoration means for California’s incarcerated students. The panel of subject matter experts and champions of higher education in prison will discuss their shared vision for the future of higher education in California. Topics include what Pell grants support; the challenges, risks, and opportunities Pell grant restoration presents; and how California is posed to lead the nation.
