Via our Washington, D.C., correspondent, Kevin Graeler, the Perkins Loan program is ending.
The Perkins Loan program, which was used by more than 15,000 Washington students last year, expired Wednesday when reauthorization efforts failed in the Senate
It's possible it could come back later in the year, Graeler reports.
A student who received money through the loan program prior to June 30 is grandfathered in and will be eligible for a Perkins through September 2020 if they remain at the same institution.
Students who received their first Perkins Loan disbursement for the current school year before Thursday may receive money through next June.
