I am Clay Pell, lawyer and former Department of Education Official. I'm here to answer your questions on the 50th Birthday of the Pell Grant!
I'm Clay Pell, a lawyer and the former Deputy Assistant Secretary for International and Foreign Language Education in the United States Department of Education. My Grandfather was the Senator responsible for the Pell Grant, and on its 50th birthday I wanted to answer your questions about the history and significance of the program. I'm here in a nonpartisan and nonpolitical capacity, so I'll mainly be talking about the the impact the Pell Grant has had. I'll start answering questions around 7 PM EST, so ask away!
