Convict Education 101: College in Prison funded through Pell Grants


August 4, 2015
by Susan Dutca-Lovell
Is it possible to educate and correct inmates through quality, legitimate prison education? Discussions of social and educational reform, particularly within more decrepit and under-resourced environments are commonplace - but what about when it comes to educating incarcerated individuals? According to the Washington Post, proponents such as Education Secretary Arne Duncan plan to assist those behind bars, particularly through Federal Pell Grants, which averages less than $6,000 a year per student. Through the new Second Chance Pell Pilot program, the goal is to have college and universities providing college-level courses in prions; in turn, inmates would be more educated which would lower prison recidivism rates, as well as community and social violence. It is not clear whether the investment would create a safer society or to what extent it would be effective, and considering its funding source – tax payer dollars - individuals such as U.S. Rep. Chris Collins argue it is a waste since the Pell Grant is a limited pot of money needed to assist struggling middle-class families.

Chris Collins argue it is a waste since the Pell Grant is a "limited pot of money needed to assist struggling middle-class families."

The Department of Justice estimated in 2013 that inmates taking educational courses in prison are 43 percent less likely to be re-incarcerated. Furthermore, four to five dollars in prison costs would be saved with every invested dollar. Unshackling the stagnant, 20-year ban on offering Pell grants to state and federal prisoners could come sooner than anticipated. While numbers have not been finalized, an estimated $30 billion a year would go into the pilot program. Only inmates eligible for release may qualify, and the program is expected to last three to five years. After all Duncan claims, "America is a nation of second chances." The question is, to whose and at what cost? In your opinion, should this be on the agenda for educational and penitentiary reform?

The Pell Grant, like all other grants, does not require repayment and is renewable annually. Based on your eligibility, you may qualify for the maximum amount of $5,775.

"Only inmates eligible for release may qualify." That's one detail that helps this case. So what if they're in prison? Everyone makes mistakes, and this affords some people the opportunity to correct their ways. If I'm understanding this correctly, this just makes inmates ELIGIBLE for Pell grants, yes? It does not offer Pell Grants with the requirement being limited to ONLY incarcerated people? The article is somewhat unclear on this detail... I feel as long as being in prison doesn't give them sort of ADVANTAGE over other hard-working people who would also qualify for these same grants, then who cares? If this is actually stating that being in prison is a REQUIREMENT for a new grant program (as opposed to simply the classes offered), then I don't support it quite as much then...

I would be glad to add a few dollars to my taxes every year to invest in better rehabilitation for inmates. This includes schooling , specific trades, parenting classes... If we do not start helping these men and women to better themselves the cycle of crime will continue and get worse. I have a fiance in prison who is working towards his AA, however I can no longer afford to pay for his courses. He has 2 and 1/2 years left and would love a chance to work for a grant. Even apply for funding to pay back when he is out and working at the same rate we would pay out here including interest. There are a lot of motivated inmates who want to better themselves for their families when they get out instead of being on government assistance.

MV  on  12/3/2015 11:40:30 AM commented:

I completely agree with J Larson! My husband is a disabled veteran and I cant even get assistance with education after he served this country for 10 years! I will say that I'm all about rehabilitation and second chances...BUT....not at the expense of law abiding people. If inmates want true rehabilitation, education & true second chances they need to sit down and read the bible. That relationship is free!

Speaking from experience, I'm a man now 35 who had been to prison and while inside I obtained my GED and an now attending college courses. I'm enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts program obtaining my degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. I'm currently carrying a 4.0 gpa and looking to graduate top of my class. So yes Ashley S. It is a way to convicts get an education something which seemed so far away and unobtainable in the past. But remember this some of us just needed a chance to be somebody great in life.

Ashley S.  on  8/10/2015 4:23:43 PM commented:

This actually infuriates me. Why should we spend money on educating them, when there are plenty of people who can't afford education to begin with that aren't in prisons? I see this creating more violence and creating the need for more space to hold people within prisons because that'll be the cheapest way for them to get educated, thus spending even MORE money.

Stephanie A  on  8/9/2015 10:41:03 AM commented:

I think the second chance pell grant is great because how do we expect those who are in prison to better their lives on the outside without an education. Generally once they are out they are thrown right back into the same living situation as before they were jailed. Making them go back to the same spot can only allow for the same result! Educate them while they are in and help them get a job to change their lives.

J. Larson  on  8/9/2015 7:10:01 AM commented:

I had a professor who used to say, "If you want a free education, all you have to do is go rob a bank." I understand where the thought is coming from, better educating an individual while they are incarcerated in the hope that they won't repeat their crime. But, I also am a student (and a military spouse at that) who almost dropped out of school because we really can't afford it this semester. The books, the traveling expenses, the loan for tuition, (on top of other debt incurred from my husband not being home for the last 6yrs), "lost" time at school that could, or maybe should, also be spent at working- all of these things add up. Quickly. To know that my family has to struggle so that I can get an education (and maybe give my husband a break from being the "breadwinner" when he retires from his service to the government that doesnt appreciate it) while inmates get an education handed to them on a paper tray is a slap in the face. If the government wants to educate the inmates with the hope that they won't return when they get out (*snort* when the prison system is such a profitable venture for some lobbyists? Uh, yeah- sure.) that's great- I hope it works out for them. But don't give it away for free when there are law abiding citizens going into crushing education debt for the same education. Make the inmates work for it just as much as the rest of us have to. Give them the same loans with the same interest rates and the same work-study options. Make them pay it back, just like the rest of us have to. ... Or, better yet, make public education a higher national priority at the k-12 level, start having some respect for teachers and pay them what they deserve for the incredibly important job that they do, and stop de-funding programs that help the impoverished and maybe- JUST MAYBE, this will be less of an issue to begin with.

Andrew S  on  8/8/2015 4:30:44 AM commented:

From personal experience, educational material inside jail, prisons, etc... Has both positive and negative outcomes. Some inmates are in there for minimal crimes and once out can maybe take what they have learned and actually make something of themselves. Now I do believe that their should be restrictions on this. Such as severity of the crime. If the person in jail has been charged with a crime that will not allow them to be able to do the job in which they are trying to study then no we should not give them the money to do so. In my own opinion the government wastes so much money every day paying for peoples housing and food that have no intention of bettering themselves because they know that the government will take from those who work and give it to those who choose not to. Truth is if an inmate wants to educate and better themselve is a much better investement than the leaches that have been bringing down America for decades.

Joely B  on  8/7/2015 7:50:15 AM commented:

Completely disagree. Educate and outreach to them before they committ a crime not after. Why reward for bad choices and behavior -- oh yeah we call that rehabilitation!!! I am paying $30K a year to send my daughter to college with no assistance from financial aid and we are trying not to take out loans. So she works and goes to school full time, I work two jobs and we sacrifice for her education. Both of us are law abiding citizens and have never be in trouble and pay taxes that help support prisoners. Now we get to help assist with providing prisoners a higher education. Please, I am done with this entitlement and no fault society.

Alexis C.  on  8/7/2015 12:27:45 AM commented:

For someone like me who is an honor student and has never been in trouble with the law I will have to take out thousands of dollars in loans to pay for college I can see why some people will be upset about prisoners getting grants for college. However, I have many family members that have been to jail or currently in jail and education will give these prisoners something to do other than go back onto the streets and up right back in jail. We say it's unfair they get grants for money but what's truly unfair is that they sit in jail doing nothing but taking our tax money to have food and bare necessities. With an education they will be able to have opportunities to be a productive member of society.

Let's be positive.  on  8/6/2015 4:20:41 PM commented:

I think that this is a positive step forward for helping those who have made the wrong choices and need a second chance. It's easy for us to look at those in prison and view them as "not us" but is hard for us to remember that we are all just people, and some of us just choose to make bad decisions. I'm a student who is struggling to find funds for education, but I'm not bitter towards this at all. I know that when you feel that you're at rock bottom, there needs to be someone to extend their hand and help push you in the right direction. I mean, once these guys get out of prison, and say that they served 20 years since they were 18, how easy do you think it will be for them to get a job to support themselves? At least with furthering their education, they will be equipped with more knowledge and have SOME chance in returning to normalcy. I have faith that if the government is able to do this, eventually they'll see the importance of providing higher education to everyone.

Joe B  on  8/6/2015 6:10:20 AM commented:

Amazing! I'm an honor student who's never been in trouble with the law. Because my parents work hard and contribute to society, I'm forced to take out higher interest loans over the next 4 years to complete my college education (totaling between $75k to $100k in debt when I graduate). Now the government is giving out free money to rapists and killers so THEY can further THEIR education??? What is wrong with our society?!?!?!

Maria . M.F  on  8/6/2015 1:01:02 AM commented:

i think that it doesn't matter where the person is at to get educated. If that person is committed to keep on going and working hard to become someone in life , then why stop them from doing that ? I feel like prisoners should be getting education. Maybe by learning more stuff , they won't do what they did to be in that place . They might change their lifes . It doesn't matter who you are or what you did . If you have the change and you are committed to start over and to follow the dreams you had before you did something stupid. Then why not do it now ? And start over ?

I guess I should of committed a crime and gone to prison, so that I would not incur student loans to further my education and be a productive member of society. Prisoners can get a college education, but law abiding citizens have to go into debt to do it.

Brenda T  on  8/5/2015 1:00:14 PM commented:

"Everyone" does deserve an education and in the U.S. public education is free from K-12. IF individuals haven't learned how to conform to societal rules by this time and find themselves incarcerated then they should not take money from my pocket! Think about it...they've already cost tax payers just in the process taken to apprehend, prosecute and house them while they're doing their time. I've worked since I was 13 years old continuously because my dad had a high school degree, a blue collar job and served our country WITH PRIDE, working hard all those years to provide for his wife and 5 children. He and our mother scrimped and saved, making it possible for all of us to have college degrees. Those of us with loans paid them back . The bleeding hearts in this country and those in high positions need to allow those who break the law to reap the consequences. That's how my siblings and I learned to study & save our money in order to get our degrees. We didn't steal!

Denise Eck  on  8/5/2015 9:04:43 AM commented:

Taking money from hard working, law abiding tax payers to give to those who do not pay, who do not follow societies rules whereby depleting the education funds paid for those individuals who do follow societies rules, who do sacrifice to get ahead, who do work is ludicrous. By suggesting we would steal these funds from those who are in society to give to those who are bot able to function in society is ludicrous and shows the USA's sad decline into this nonsensical abyss. We as a society lack common sense. Steal from those who have sacrificed and are well deserving of these funds to give to another who is incarcinated, who may never be released and who has proven their defiance for rules. Bleeding hearts often lack common sense. Bleed for my heart as a parent unable to pay my son's last year of college. We do not get grants for his education but rather have had to pay his tuituon in full out of my hard earned money while other student pay nothing because their parents won't work

Everyone, don't panic that your kids are cheated on this deal. Why? Just because prisoners get some education, it doesn't compare to the education that you'd get in a real college. What they get is minimal, and in this job market, if you go to college in prison you're not very marketable. Trust me, those prisoners aren't getting much.

lesley s.  on  8/5/2015 4:04:44 AM commented:

My husband and I both work and fit into the "middle class" category. Because of this, we are to "rich" to receive any financial assistance for our sons college education yet to "poor" to pay for college tuition. Our son works very hard in school (he is currently a junior in high school), ranks very high in his class yet because my husband & both work & haven't broken the law & been incarerated like the prisoners that will receive a "free ride," our son is the one who gets punished! These prisoners have an easier time of getting a college education than our hard working, honest son. It seems he's punished for coming from a family that believes in working and obeying the law!!!!

Junise kg  on  8/5/2015 12:40:31 AM commented:

I believe that's a good decision everyone deserves good education and everyone deserves a second chance and even though they had made decisions that were unlawful but doesn't mean that they should be left with out an education I Believe education is The key to life now some may use this as an abuse and use it for harm some may use it for good so this could turn out to be a positive and also a negative but there's always A pro or con and making a decision so I think that this decision is a very good decision but there's also a con in this decision where inmates may use it in harmful way .

Mel k  on  8/4/2015 10:21:49 PM commented:

this is fantastic! many people who have been in prison feel there's no where to go after being released, and there usually isn't considering the very very low number of people willing to hire an ex-inmate. this gives them a chance and its a beautiful way to give people a second chance. I'd totally want to spend tax dollars on this!!

I am a licensed minister of the Gospel and entering my 3rd year of graduate school in Divinity. Having never experienced incarceration within the penal system; God has called me to ministry in the areas of re-entry and second change programs. I am currently employed as an adult correction officer (8 years) and have worked 5 years for a youth detention center. Do I think the Department of Justice should make the Pell Grant available for those incarcerated and bring college level courses into the prison system? No, in my experience many inmates attending GED, AAA, Anger Management, Parenting and other courses already offered are doing so just to pass their time away and not really applying themselves. What Secretary Arne Duncan can do is to develop a national team to evaluate the current programs local jails and prisons offer as of this day, make improvements were needed. Then make this money and other help available to those who apply for college upon their release. Count me in.

I believe that you could teach inmates acedemics. Just because one person is behind bars for crimes doesnt mean that they are not allowed an education. Education of any kind is excellent for all people of the world. Education is good because the more we know the better we are mentally & spiritually. Everyone should be entitled and education. Even when one is in prison.

It's a shame that tax payer dollars are funding/rewarding those that have opted to be incarcerated. This takes money away from those that are in need and are doing the right things in life. There are families/children who don't qualify for the PELL grant because double income parents make too much money and now we're talking about giving criminals? RIDICULOUS!

Christy S.  on  8/4/2015 3:47:02 PM commented:

Depending on the nature of the crime and the age of the prisoner. If an inmate is not a rapist, murderer, or child molester, I'd say yes. Why should our tax dollars be used for something if they won't see the light of day to use. If an inmate is charged with a lesser crime and is eligible for parole, I say give them a fighting chance to correct their wrongs.

Inmates are humans and still can have a positive roll in society. We all have made bad decisions and some have Been caught and some haven't. In this life if we the so called correct citizens have the opertunity to help and change a life we should because that's the example we need to set for the youth. Good citizens help during the bad and the good. Everyone can change and it only take an act of kindness to spark that within someone. Tax money of the people go toward positive impacts of society and this is an improvement that has major potential. Thanks for your time and please consider what has been stated in this response.

The cycle of out of control students loans is because of this kind of crap

Gloria S  on  8/4/2015 2:37:19 PM commented:

I don't think that the Pell or any grants should be given to those in prison. If they want to take classes, let them pay for it, like the rest of us. They can take out student loans but shouldn't be able to have free money (*that is basically covered by taxpayers) to get the education. This should be a stipulation on grants.

Kristin H  on  8/4/2015 2:34:14 PM commented:

This is absolutely ridiculous. As a hard-working student who comes from a middle-income level family, I have to work hard in order to receive ANY financial aid, My parents make too much money per year for me to qualify for the pell grant, yet there is no law that says they must assist with my tuition. On the other side, if I were to violate a federal law, and get locked up in prison, I could qualify for my entire education to be paid for. All for committing a crime. If the government wants to be assisting anyone, it should be the ones who offer something to society, not the liars, cheats, thieves, and murderers. Don't get me wrong, I believe in offering others a second chance, but I think this oversteps some boundaries, and is extremely unfair for students who struggle just to pay tuition costs.

Lauren J  on  8/4/2015 2:21:01 PM commented:

I think the objective of the idea is great, but inmates have the same chance of landing back in prison. I think educating them would help greatly and I hope it helps make a difference in their lives.

Bill T  on  8/4/2015 10:57:35 AM commented:

So many questions and too few answers. Does the number of criminals reicarcerated go down because they are rehabilitated or know how to circumvent the legal system and be found not guilty on a technicality. Lower and middle class should get first right of refusal on these grants. In a time when student debt from educational loans is at an all time high giving money to criminals already burdening our tax base seems like a poor decision. One based on creating more jobs for politically connected people to manage the program or study it at overpaid salaries.


    When it comes to large dollar scholarships, mo' money means fewer problems in paying your college tuition bill. The average student will land between $1,000 and $5,000 in college scholarships after investing a decent amount of time and effort into applying for scholarships. Even smaller scholarships worth $500 are enough to cover books and fees, even if they aren't enough to foot an entire semester’s college tuition bill.

If there is one thing upon which 2020 Presidential candidates and government officials agree, it is that something must be done to resolve the issue of college student debt, which has now outpaced credit card and auto debt. More than fifty percent of Americans believe that college student debt is a major problem, with the average college student currently graduating with $30,000 in student loan debt. Some of the proposed college debt plans - such as student loan forgiveness plans - would leave students debt-free, while others would offer new repayment and refinancing options. Here are some of the major changes that could take place in the near future:
