TOPEKA – A new report says more Kansas college students are receiving Pell Grants but the money isn’t covering the rising cost of attending a four-year college.
The report delivered Thursday to the Kansas Board of Regents says more than 37 percent of four-year students in Kansas received Pell Grants last year.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports more than 37 percent of students attending four-year universities in Kansas last year received Pell Grants. But the grants covered only 63 percent of tuition and fees, compared with 99 percent a decade ago.
The information was part of a report about the Regents’ long-range strategic plan, which includes the goal of increasing the higher education level in the state.
