Colleges Support Low Income Students

In many ways, colleges and universities reach out to and attract low income students: scholarships, aid, fellowships/grants, discounts, Economic Opportunity Fund programs, work-study offerings, etc. The New York Times reports on the ways in which the top 179 institutions support this population.

Some of the University of California campus rank at the top of the list; however, the list includes largely private schools, such as Princeton (#18) and the University of Pennsylvania (#39). A few public school do make the list, one from New Jersey: University of New Hampshire is #75; University of Connecticut is #87; SUNY Geneseo is #91; The College of New Jersey is #118; and Penn State is #152.
