  • Pledges for Low-Income Students

    Inside Higher Ed - 01/16/2014

    Yale University, for instance, committed to increasing by 50 percent the number of students it enrolls through QuestBridge, a nonprofit organization that that connects high-achieving low-income students to elite universities. Northeastern University will offer 30 new grants to cover the full demonstrated need for low-income students from Boston public high schools who live in neighborhoods surrounding the university’s campus.  Morehouse College, meanwhile, committed to piloting a new pre-collegiate assessment model in lieu of the SAT that assesses non-cognitive STEM aptitude.

    The administration also secured significant financial commitments from nonprofit groups, corporations, philanthropic organizations and other foundations.
