Passing the Cherish Act Would Mean:
Properly investing in the Commonwealth’s most important engine of democracy, opportunity and economic prosperity. Enabling more people to benefit from public higher education by:
- Increasing scholarship aid to provide debt-free public college for students.
- Creating a debt-free community college program in FY24, and for four-year universities subsequently.
- Eliminating student fees related to capital debt, fringe benefit and payroll costs.
