Harvard Offers Free Tuition For Low Income Families

My friend received this email and I thought I would post it here since it seems like the kind of thing a lot of people would be interested in, but wouldn’t be aware of.

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. If you
know any one/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.”

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! To find out more
