Harvard wants to reach more low-income applicants

Harvard University announced a campaign Thursday to encourage more low-income high school students to apply to Harvard and other elite schools, which have been criticized in recent years for not doing enough to recruit and admit academically gifted students of little means.

The Harvard College Connection initiative will feature online outreach — including a website, social media, and videos — along with more traditional methods to highlight information about financial aid options at Harvard and other schools and to help high school students apply.
