Harvard to announce aid for poor students

By Marcella Bombardieri, Globe Staff, 2/29/2004

Harvard University's president, Lawrence H. Summers, is expected to announce today that parents who make less than $40,000 a year will no longer be asked to help pay for their child's Harvard education.

"We want to send the strongest possible message that Harvard is open to talented students from all economic backgrounds," Summers said in a statement that was released yesterday.

Under the plan, Harvard will foot the entire bill for its lowest-income students' tuition, room, board, and fees, the cost of which is $37,928 for this year. The initiative is one of several -- all aimed at boosting efforts to recruit and support students from low- or moderate-income families -- that Summers is scheduled to announce this afternoon in Miami, at the annual meeting of the American Council on Education.
