The launch of this new website comes after SLLI’s announcement of a new round of grant funding available to support researchers interested in tackling the most pressing issues at the center of the student debt crisis. For the first time in more than two years, the Student Loan Research Grants program will offer awards of up to $15,000 to interested researchers, academics, and other experts across disciplines to conduct foundational scholarship on the student debt crisis and its widespread effects on borrowers, their communities, and the nation.

SLLI offers an unprecedented opportunity to support and foster high-quality academic research that can help us better understand the student loan crisis and find a path forward.
