Today at 4:00pm ET President Obama will take to Tumblr to answer your questions about education, college affordability, and reducing student loan debt.
Getting a higher education is the single-most important investment students can make in their own futures. At the same time, it’s never been more expensive. That’s why since taking office, the President has made historic investments to make college more affordable – and it’s why he’s inviting you to join today’s conversation about the issue.
Making college more accessible is a goal we share at CNCS. Over the past 20 years, we have supported more than 830,000 AmeriCorps members who have earned $2.7 billion in Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards to help pay for college or pay back student loans. Hundreds of AmeriCorps members across the country are helping students achieve their dreams of a college education by mentoring them in selecting courses, preparing college applications, applying for financial aid, and more.
So tune in at 4:00 pm ET today on WhiteHouse.Tumblr.com to watch President Obama’s first-ever Tumblr Q&A, answering your questions on education.
