Yes you read right!

Harvard is giving ZERO-Contribution tuitions to any ACCEPTED student who's total family income is less than $60,000 per year. Additionally they intend to raise the income threshold to $80,000. The catch? You actually have to get accepted by their traditional academic standards.

This effort by Harvard is to widen the access of their university to qualified students from under-privledged income pools.

I applaud Harvard for their efforts and ask that as parents, educators, caregivers, mentors, etc. we extend our sights and the sights of our students to the highest heights such as the IVY leagues, since the original barrier to entry, MONEY, is now being removed. Our kids are more than capable of achieving the academic standards required by these institutions with the right support and foundation and most importantly MOTIVATION from us!

Now the question is will other ivy league institutions follow Harvards lead?? Will Brown, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Cornell and UPenn follow suite?GOd Willing I hope so.
