What the Pell? New Data on Pell Grad Rates

This groundbreaking report presents hard-edge data on why improving college outcomes for low-income students is critically important for our nation’s health and economic mobility.
Researchers from The Education Trust will present the data, including case studies of specific institutions, and recommend policy changes that can help improve outcomes for low-income students.
