Wright praised for new financial aid initiatives

Dartmouth announced extensive reforms to the College's financial-aid policy last January, including elimination of tuition for families earning less than $75,000 a year, following the lead of the College's peer institutions, which had earlier publicized similar alterations to their own financial-aid programs. Under College President James Wright's leadership, Dartmouth announced that it would substitute all loans with scholarships and promise need-blind admission for international students, effective fall 2008. Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Maria Laskaris '84 said the new initiatives addressed the concern that Dartmouth was becoming out of reach for lower- and middle-income families. "If we truly wanted a diverse student body, we needed to think about our financial aid and make sure we were truly accessible to lower- and middleincome families," she said.
