PICKING UP THE TAB
The University of Pennsylvania has decided to pay tuition and room-and-board for students whose families earn less than $50,000 a year in an effort to economically diversify its student population.
Penn's program, which applies to current and incoming students, will cover 300 to 400 students. A Penn undergraduate pays $32,364 in tuition and $9,402 in room-and-board per year.
