The article reports on the challenges facing higher education in the U.S. in 2013. According to U.S. Public Interest Research Group higher education program director Chris Lindstrom, the looming budget reductions may cut 43 million dollars of supplemental education grants serving 1.5 million students. Education funding for the fiscal period that started October 1, 2012 has yet to be approved by the U.S. Congress and education advocates speculate that it will be tied to budget cut talks.
