AICUP on the Hill Day is a day set aside each year for students from our member institutions to advocate for legislative support for private institutions of higher education. It is a great opportunity to remind legislators that their constituents attend private colleges and universities because it provides an excellent educational opportunity and experience for the participating students.

This year's advocacy day primarily focuses on funding for the institutional assistance grants, PHEAA grant programs and the Ready to Succeed Scholarship program so more middle-income students can benefit from the financial help it provides.

We look forward to seeing all of our member representatives for another successful AICUP on the Hill Day!

What is an Advocate?

ad·vo·cate noun /advəkət/: a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.

Being an advocate gives you an opportunity to make sure your voice is heard. As a participant of Student Aid Advocacy Day you are actively building vital support for financial aid programs for Pennsylvania private college and university students. 

Your advocacy efforts will be focused on meeting with your elected officials on Student Aid Advocacy Day at the Capitol, and in actively engaging other students on your campus. Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the materials and resources sections. Informed student advocates can make a difference in important policy-making decisions.
