Thirty top colleges and universities, including Ohio State University, have committed to help thousands of talented low- and moderate-income students find their way to a quality higher education.
The program, funded with a $1.7 million grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies, is called the American Talent Initiative. Its goal is to educate an additional 50,000 high achievers from lower-income families by 2025. That involves connecting them with the 270 U.S. colleges and universities with the highest graduation rates.
