I think that it is nothing less than AMAZING that Harvard University did this so that our less fortunate children from low income families can get a fair chance at receiving a prestigious education from one of the best Universities in the Country. It is mind blowing how many children are graduating from High School with high honors and don’t have the opportunity to attend one of the best Universities due to financial constraints or NOT receiving a scholarship.
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 ten percent of the students in elite higher education come from families in the lower half of 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 $60,000 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!
