On Wednesday, March 14, students and financial aid supporters from Gustavus Adolphus College will have the opportunity gather at the state Capitol to advocate for the Minnesota State Grant program, as a part of Gustavus's Day at the Capitol.

The Minnesota State Grant program supports more than 88,000 Minnesota college students, at both public and private institutions. Many Gustavus students receive state grants and all Gustavus students benefit from the Minnesota State Grant Program because State Grant money frees up financial aid to be used for other students.

Day at the Capitol allows students to learn how to become effective advocates while urging state legislators to support Minnesota students. Participants will speak with key lawmakers about the importance of the Minnesota State Grant Program, hear from Gustavus alumni who work in the legislature, tour the Capitol, and enjoy dinner out together.

The day is free of charge including lunch, dinner, and transportation to the capitol. Join us at Gustavus's Day at the Capitol.
