How High-Achieving Low-Income Students Respond to Targeted Financial Aid

Grant Year: 2021


Stefanie DeLuca and Susan Dynarski will explore the drivers of a successful initiative to increase the enrollment of high-achieving students from low-income families at a selective university. They will interview students participating in the High Achieving Involved Leader Scholars program to understand what features of the program led them to enroll at the University of Michigan’s flagship campus in Ann Arbor. The project’s finding will appear in a paper and a series of shorter policy briefs and articles.
