Will Pay It Forward replace state funding for higher education?

A:

No. It is imperative that states continue to invest – and increase investing – in higher education. Pay It Forward is part of a comprehensive solution to higher education access and affordability. To this end, many states considering Pay It Forward pilot programs also have efforts underway to freeze or limit tuition increases. Legislators understand that Pay It Forward must be considered in tandem with policies that restore state funding to higher education.
