Change in the Parent PLUS loan by the Obama Administration has caused around 300 students at Morgan State University to be in jeopardy of having their academic schedules disrupted this fall. Morgan State University president Dr. David Wilson has set up an emergency fund to help students who need scholarships and financial assistance.

Their goal is to raise $300,000 by August 31st,  giving each of the approximately 300 students who face circumstances beyond their control a minimum $1,000 scholarship for immediate emergency assistance until changes can be made to federal student loan policies.

“Everyone deserves the chance to be educated to give back in ways that are positive and immeasurable to the health and well-being of our families and communities,” said Dr. David Wilson in a letter to alumni and friends.
