Pell Grants – Collection Finding Aid


Pell Grants – Collection Finding Aid


This collection consists of records related to federal Pell grants used to provide educational financial aid for incarcerated prisoners. During the Clinton Administration, the award amount of Pell Grants increased, but the 1994 Violent Crimes Control and Law Enforcement Act eliminated Pell Grants and other federal aid for prisoners. This collection contains correspondence, emails, memos, and press clippings
