Higher Education

Massachusetts colleges and universities provide some of the best educational programs in America, alongside countless research and development projects that keep our country on the cutting edge in our rapidly changing world.  Senator Markey has continuously opposed cuts to federal research grants that make projects at these institutions possible. He has also fought to ensure student loan rates are kept down, so that everyone can have the chance to get a top-rate education without the burden of endless debt. He has consistently fought to lower the interest rates on federal student loan rates to help today’s kids reach their goals of attaining a college degree.
