Thousands of UTA students receive financial aid through Pell Grants. President Trump’s new budget plan for the 2018 fiscal year includes cutting the Federal Pell Grant program by 3.9 billion dollars. For students like Morgan Rubin, that could affect their ability to go to college. UTA gets 47 million dollars in federal funds each year. Financial Aid Executive Director Karen Krause says aid money is allotted to thousands of UTA students every year. The budget cuts could force these students to find new financial resource for college.
