SMU Staff Rally at the Capitol; Cal Grant Proposed Cut will Hurt over 26,000 Students

A controversial proposal from Democratic California Governor Jerry Brown to slash grant funding for private school students was defeated on March 7, after students and college and university administrators rallied at the Capitol building in Sacramento. Some of the attendees were staff members from Samuel Merritt University. In an effort to tackle California's $9.2 billion budget deficit, Gov. Brown proposed to cut $301.7 million from Cal Grants -- reducing the maximum grant from $9,708 to $5,472.
