edited January 2008 in Parents Forum
I know I read this info somewhere on CC, but I can't find it. Can we start a master list of no-loan no-income limit schools and the links to the policies, and also for loan limit schools?
Here's a link to one report on the no-loan deal, but it is already out-of-date.

Please add the schools alphabetically in the correct place.

    University of Chicago The University of Chicago: Odyssey Scholarships

    "Odyssey Scholarships will benefit more than 1,200 students in the College from low- and moderate-income families by replacing their student loans with outright grants." The exact policy isn't very clear, probably because the plan doesn't go into effect until next fall.

    Connecticut College: somewhat ambiguous: no loans [?] @ income levels under $50,000 and EFC of $5,000 or less. Some reduction in loans at income levels up to $75,000 and EFC under $15,000.

    Hi, I know this repeats some of the above info, but here's the list that I've been making:

    Amherst College
    Bowdoin College
    California Institute of Technology (income less than $60k/year)
    Colby College
    Columbia University (income less than $50k/year)
    Connecticut College (income less than $50k, EFC less than $5000, loans capped at other income levels)
    Dartmouth College (income less than $30k, loans capped at other income levels)
    Davidson College
    Duke University (income less than $40k/year)
    Emory University (income less than $50k/year)
    Harvard University (income less than $60k/year)
    Haverford College
    Pomona College;
    Princeton University
    Rice University (income less than $60k/year)
    Swarthmore College
    Tufts University (income less than $40k/year)
    University of Chicago (income less than $60k/year)
    University of Pennsylvania (income less than $100k/year)
    Wesleyan University(income less than $40k/year)
    Williams College
    Yale University (income less than $60k/year)


    UIUC also offers full tuition, room/board, and books for IL residents whose EFC=$0.

    UVA and UNC-CH also have low-income inititives, but I'm not sure if those are for in-state residents only.
