Top Colleges Enrolling More Students From Low-Income Homes

Since a public effort called the American Talent Initiative was launched two years ago, 96 schools have increased enrollment of low-income students by 7,291 students, a 3.5% gain. The American Talent Initiative backed by $4.7 million to date from Bloomberg Philanthropies, has grown from 30 schools to 108 with a goal of increasing by 50,000 the number of low income students that receive a quality education by 2025. Low income is defined by families that earn below $40,000. Inclusive Viewpoint: Kudos to the American Talent Initiative https://americantalentinitiative.org/ for recognizing that there are many ‘diamonds in the rough’ that need access to educational opportunities to become economically empowered. A shift from merit-based to need-based financial aid, appealing to more military veterans and recruiting more community college graduates are key ways to find more diamonds.
