Subject: [NAME-MCE] Free Tuition to attend Harvard

 FYI and pass it on, if you know of anyone who's interested.

   Forwarded for your information and your use, pass it on!
   Harvard is offering free tuition for students that have a family income
   below $40,000. If you are a mentor or have nieces and nephews who might
   be interested, please give them this information.
   Subject: Harvard's

   Tuition Announcement

   If you know anyone/family earning less than $40K with a brilliant child
   near ready for college, please pass this along.
   Harvard's Tuition Announcement Highlights Failure of Prestigious
   Universities to Enroll Low-Income Students
   March 1, 2004: 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."
   This initiative puts severe pressure on other well-endowed colleges and
   universities to adopt similar measures. Some commentators believe that
   Harvard's announcement was made in response to Princeton University's
   decision six years ago to eliminate all tuition charges for families
   earning less than $40,000 (adjusted annually to take inflation into
   account) and its subsequent decision three years later to substitute all
   student loans with outright grants.

   The Harvard announcement indicates tha! t the Princeton plan has had
   some
   success in drawing to Princeton some of the high-achieving, low-income
   students who typically went to Harvard.
   Each year The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education gathers figures from
   the U.S. Department of Education relating to the percentage of students
   at the nation's leading colleges and universities who receive federal
   financial assistance under the Pell Grant program for low-income
   students. These figures provide a good measure of the institution's
   relative success in enrolling students from the bottom economic sector
   of the nation's families.

   In the file attachment, on page 2, there are current figures for the
   nation's academically highest-rated universities ranked according to the
   highest percentage of students receiving Pell Grants.
