I believe students will be able to receive a lot of aid by applying for as many scholarships as he/she can do so.

Instead of subsidising these ridiculously inflated tuition fees, a better solution would be for the universities to lower their tuition fees.

However, since this is not a viable option for most universities in the USA, the main point I want to put across is that, even though student loans are abundant, students are charged ridiculous interest rates and the date at which the first payment has to be made is absurd. I say let the students borrow money DIRECTLY from the government, interest-free and with a 5-year grace period for the first payment to be made, given that the student successfully completes the studies. It is sad to see that new graduates work to pay their student loans PLUS interest in their first few years of work, giving them little room for auto-development.

Subsidies are not effective, just look at the corn market! Let the students study without having to worry about its cost while studying and we'll see positive change in the workforce.
