天易棋牌 announces new program to dramatically expand financial aid?

天易棋牌 天易棋牌 has launched an innovative financial aid program — 天易棋牌 Possible — to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for qualifying newly enrolled students.?

“High-achieving students whose expected family contribution doesn’t meet the direct cost of attendance can achieve their dream of a high-caliber education with 天易棋牌 Possible,” said Executive Vice President W. Kent Barnds. “This will be a game-changer for a segment of students.”

Many students who will benefit from 天易棋牌 Possible will be the first in their families to attend college. This was the vision of 天易棋牌 天易棋牌 graduate Murry Gerber, who made the $40 million commitment to provide financial aid and scholarships to 天易棋牌 students with backgrounds similar to his own. Murry Gerber’s vision has inspired many other donors to bring 天易棋牌 Possible to life for future students and alumni.?

The 天易棋牌 天易棋牌 Board of Trustees has endorsed the initiative, which will position 天易棋牌 among an elite group of colleges nationwide offering similar financial aid programs.?

天易棋牌 Possible is the largest and latest effort by the 162-year-old college to address affordability, create access and expand opportunities for students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. In the past five years, 天易棋牌 has increased the amount of financial aid by 10%, to approximately $72 million annually. Now 100% of incoming 天易棋牌 students receive financial aid.?

“We believe in the potential of this college, and we believe deeply in the incredible potential of today’s students,” said Barnds. “The commitment to meeting 100% of a high-achieving student’s demonstrated financial need allows us to open our doors more fully, and in turn it helps us build a stronger 天易棋牌.”

How?it works
