PELL tells the inspiring story of Rhode Island Senator Claiborne Pell and his fight, against all odds, to give every student the opportunity to get a higher education regardless of their economic background.

PELL takes you from the mansions of Newport to the dramatic behind the scenes legislative conference in 1972 to recount how a wealthy, unassuming Senator from Rhode Island reached across party lines and was able to get the House and the Senate members to vote for the passage of the Pell Grant Legislation. From his early days in the Coast Guard, Senator Claiborne Pell sought to help his fellow seamen get access to the kind of college education that he received at  Princeton.

PELL details his fervent request to bring the Pell Grants – financial aid for each and every student – to fruition.

Directed by Steven Feinberg, Produced by Elyse Katz and Steven Feinberg
