  • More than 100 colleges made pledges at the first White House summit. Here’s how 6 fared.

    The Chronicle of Higher Education - 12/04/2014

    Northeastern University (Mass.):
    What it pledged: Northeastern pledged to fund 150 scholarships for students from Boston’s public schools, including 30 new scholarships covering the full “demonstrated need” of low-income public-school students who live near the university’s main campus.

    What it’s done: The university has filled about 130 of the scholarship spots and says it will fill the entire 150 now that it has a full regular-admissions cycle to do so.

    To fill those slots, Northeastern has planned outreach events at Boston public schools and has organized two college-readiness programs geared specifically toward the scholarships.

    What it’ll do next: Northeastern will continue offering the 150 full-tuition scholarships.
