As University of Virginia Board of Visitors members sat inside the Rotunda for a second day of meetings, students crowded the steps outside to protest financial aid cuts approved by the board last month.

Students representing various activist groups criticized the decision to scale back grants to low-income students under the school’s AccessUVa program. The group sent board members a copy of a petition, signed by more than 8,000 people, calling on the university to restore the aid, which previously covered costs for undergraduates from families with incomes of up to 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline.
