Mathews On Merit Aid

Wash Post’s Jay Mathews looks at the increase in merit-based aid in higher education and the consequences:

A 2003 study by the Indianapolis-based Lumina Foundation for Education reported that from 1995 to 2000, scholarship aid to students from families making $40,000 or less increased 22 percent in 1999 dollars. At the same time, scholarship aid for students in families making $100,000 or more a year increased 145 percent.
