Student Lobbying Day

Each spring, students attending independent colleges who receive Cal Grant awards from the state of California travel to the state capitol and meet with legislators to advocate for continued funding for the Cal Grant program. These students represent thousands of Cal Grant recipients enrolled in the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU). Several USD students participate in this effort and speak on behalf of the hundreds of Cal Grant recipients who attend USD.

Student Lobbying Day allows students to be part of their learning and see the impact that lobbying has on the political process. USD students who are Cal Grant recipients and interested in participating should contact the Office of Community and Government Relations by February 1 each year to find out more information.
