“U.S. Rep. Ann M. Kuster, D-N.H., visited the college Thursday to lead a panel discussion on college affordability.
In her opening remarks, Kuster expressed disappointment in President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts to higher education programs.
She noted that the budget cuts would significantly reduce or eliminate several federal financial aid programs, including the Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant program, the federal work study program, the Gear Up program, and the TRIO program, which provides advising on college affordability to underserved high school students.”
