HAIL Scholars: Increasing Economic Diversity at a Flagship University

Grant Year: 2019

Susan Dynarski and Katherine Michelmore will evaluate whether a program to recruit more high-performing students from low-income families to attend an elite public university is an effective means to promote economic mobility. They will measure the initiative’s impact on college enrollment, course-taking, and degree attainment among a sample of Michigan high school students who were actively recruited to enroll at the University of Michigan. The project’s findings will appear in a series of articles and briefings for state policymakers.
