Advocate for state student aid programs
Your help is needed to help advocate with New York state lawmakers for programs of importance to RIT and its students.
State leaders are negotiating a budget agreement and we are asking for their continued state support of a program called Bundy Aid that provides student aid funds to nearly every private, not-for-profit campus in New York including RIT, as well as HEOP, STEP/C-STEP, and the Liberty Partnerships Program that are critical for ensuring underrepresented students have the chance to pursue their college dreams.
Lawmakers have also proposed expanding the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarship Incentive Program to include students at private, not-for-profit colleges and universities, which would be very important and helpful to RIT students as well.
RIT is taking part in an e-advocacy campaign asking the Legislature to ensure that funding for these programs is included in the final State budget that we expect to be approved next week. To participate, click on the link above and enter your home address. That will ensure the message is received by the policymakers who represent you as a constituent.
Just fill in the short form and click submit, and your email will be automatically sent to your state legislators as well as other key state leaders who are making state budget decisions that will impact the campus community.
