Pell Grant limits come as a surpriseSTEVE EPPERSON
S orry, college students. It is being reported President Barack Obama has cut your access to Pell Grants by 33 percent; he just forgot to mention it before Election Day. During the recent campaign, Obama claimed credit for increasing funding to the Pell Grant program, which provides college funds, free from repayment, to millions of students. However, an email sent out Tuesday to some Dallas college students is revealing a detail the president forgot to mention: The time a student can receive a Pell Grant has been cut by as much as three years. With Pell Grants for the fall semester now dispersed, colleges are informing students of their options, bringing the cuts to light.
