- Work study. The details are vague on how much funding would be cut from the federal work study program, but the "Trump Blueprint" stated that cuts would be “significant,” according to TIME.
- TRIO. This program provides outreach and services to low-income or disadvantaged students through a variety of programs, like Upward Bound.
- GEAR UP. A bulk of this program provides grants to institutions and organizations that work with students throughout middle and high school towards college preparedness. Funds are also used to provide college scholarships to low-income students.
For now, these cuts are just part of the “Trump Blueprint.” Congress will also draft budgets and pass the appropriation bills that will fund the government, which likely won’t happen until May. Essentially, the cuts to Education funding are hypothetical; however, should these cuts become a reality, low-income students will require more financial aid from the federal government or uncover more creative options for paying for school.
