The California State University System has decided to preserve grants for graduate students, easing the fears of about 20,000 grad students whose funds were in danger, The Los Angeles Times reported. The system is facing deep budget cuts from the state, and considered asking the low-income graduate students to use federal loans -- rather than the grants -- to cover their expenses. The plan was abandoned amid a lobbying campaign by students to preserve the funds.
