Harvard Offering Free Tuition
Prestigious Harvard University recently announced a program that from now on allows undergraduate students from low-income families to attend the ivy league university tuition-free and loan-free. Families earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor student graduating from high school qualify for this program.
During 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 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.'
Sounds like an excellent opportunity!
