The National Student Legal Defense Network (NSLDN) is a nonprofit organization that works, through litigation and advocacy, to advance students' rights to educational opportunity and to ensure that higher education provides a launching point for economic mobility.  This grant, administered under The Century Foundation’s fiscal sponsorship, will among other activities enable NSLDN to add an advocacy counsel working to promote student loan protections, provide legal advice to other advocacy organizations, engage in the legislative and rulemaking process on behalf of students’ interests, and directly represent defrauded students.
