The Students First Alliance goal is to protect the Cal Grant program for deserving California students. We are a student led campaign that seeks to educate the public and policymakers about the benefits of the Cal Grant. This student led coalition is supported by the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU). The Cal Grant award can be used at all segments of higher education. Cal Grants are administered by the California Student Aid Commission ( Students attending a private, non-profit can receive up to $9,084 in 2013-14 and students at UC and CSU have their system wide fees covered. The Cal Grant program has made college possible for many students and families experiencing financial hardship. It’s important that all students work together to build a better understanding among policymakers of the significant benefits that the State gains from the Cal Grant investment. The Cal Grant is an important investment in California’s future.
