Fox 11: Financial aid demand up, dollars down

State grant funds are running out of money and students across Wisconsin are feeling the pinch as they investigate ways to pay for college, Fox 11 news reports.

“The Higher Educational Aids Board notified every institution in the UW System and said that we have to stop awarding state grants because they are running out of money,” UW-Green Bay Financial Aid Director Ron Ronnenberg told Fox 11 recently.

Ronnenberg says it’s not too late to make the finances work for this year. Loans may still be an option, and the earlier students contact their school to work out a plan, the better.
