News about Student Loans from


Lots of exciting things on the student loan reform front are in the works for the upcoming year - we've already won a few battles over the course of the last 3 years, but the real fight is only just beginning. With the Presidential and Congressional elections a mere 11 months away, and all of our allies are determined to make student loan debt a major issue of the 2012 campaign and, to do that, as always, we need your help!

Young Invincibles is one such ally engaged in the fight to restore sanity to the way in which we pay for higher education in America. They are a group that formed in a law school cafeteria in 2009 over concerns that their voices weren't being heard during the protracted debate over health care reform. Over the course of the last 2.5 years, they've grown to become one of the leading voices in Washington, D.C., representing the interests of 18-34 year olds with respect to public policy.

They've put together a brief survey about students' experiences with student loan debt so as to better serve their constituency - a constituency that has a great deal of overlap with ours. As such, I'm asking everyone to take a few moments of their time to complete this brief survey so as to help our new friends out. We need all the allies we can muster, and Young Invincibles is a great one to have!

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the cause! Let's build upon our success and make 2012 a watershed year for student loan reform!

I guess I just need to apply for a student loan this coming school opening. I am going to college yet I don't have enough money to fund my needs, I think I really need student loans and have some advice from the lenders for my loan deals.

Well, applying for a student loan is the most popular way to pay for higher education in the USA and the main reason is that college tuition is extremely expensive. So if a student of his/her parents haven't saved money for the education they choose student loan and get into he debt. And it's no good that a way to a collge degree goes through a huge debt. Lots of the students have very tight budgets and should borrow money to make payments on their student loans. I think it's necessary for the government to make some important steps to reduce the student loan debt and make higher education more affordable.
