Colleges Step Up Fund-Raising Efforts to Support Student Aid
Supiano, Beckie
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n34 pA15 May 2008
With the economy sputtering and Congress pressuring colleges to be more affordable, many institutions feel a heightened need to provide more financial aid--and they are turning to alumni and other private donors for help. While specifics vary from college to college, all types of institutions are feeling the pressure. Many smaller, private colleges find themselves in the tough position of having to dedicate increasing sums from their operating budgets to pay for such aid. They know they must become more affordable if they want to attract talented students of lesser means. If they cannot offer the best students a good aid package, those students will go elsewhere. In this article, the author discusses the manner in which some colleges are using fund-raising to support student aid programs.
