- Harvard is offering free tuition for students that have a family income below $40,000.
- Failure of Prestigious Universities to Enroll Low-Income Students March 1, 2005, Harvard University announced over
the weekend that from now on undergraduate students from low-income
families will pay no tuition. In making the announcement, Harvard's
president Lawrence H. Summers said, "When only 10 percent of the students in Elite higher education come
from families in lower half the income distribution,
we are not doing enough. We are not doing enough in
bringing elite higher education to the lower half of
the income distribution." If you know of a family
earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor student
graduating from high school soon, Harvard University
wants to pay the tuition. The prestigious university
recently announced that from now on undergraduate
students from low-income families can go to Harvard
for free...no tuition and no student loans!
