Cuomo Statement: Support College Program

Written By Editor on 2/8/17 | 2/8/17

When it comes to higher education in New York this much is clear: A student's access to a quality education shouldn’t depend on what their parents make.

That’s why I kicked off the Excelsior Scholarship Campaign this week, to talk to people about my plan to offer tuition-free college at our state universities to middle class New Yorkers. This initiative is the first-of-its-kind in the nation and will enable thousands of bright, young students to pursue their dreams of higher education -- without the pressure of crushing student loan debt.

Can I count on you to help me make college a reality, not a dream, for all New Yorkers? Share your support for this proposal now.

Far too many young people today are deprived of access to the quality education they need to get ahead and succeed in today’s economy. This proposal will change that.

Through the “Excelsior Scholarship” program, students will be able to realize their dream of  higher education no matter how much money is in their pocket or the neighborhood that they come from. Together we can place more students on a path to financial security, improve our graduation rates and eliminate the burden of student debt. But only if New Yorkers like you step up in support.
