    The Women's Technology Program at MIT is a 4-week summer residence program
    to introduce high school girls to electrical engineering and computer
    science. If you know a girl who is currently a high school junior with
    demonstrated math and science ability and an interest in finding out about
    EECS, please encourage her to visit our website for more information and
    for an application form (applications are due February 3, 2005):
    :ol('http://wtp.mit.edu');> http://wtp.mit.edu
    Our classes are taught in a supportive environment by a staff of women MIT
    PhD candidates and undergraduates. The full-time academic program includes
    hands-on experiments and team-based projects in computer science, electrical
    engineering, and mathematics.

    Our goals are to increase girls' interest and confidence in pursuing
    computer science and engineering and make them aware of their potential for
    success in these fields. Participants are selected from a nationwide
    applicant pool of girls who attend the program in the summer between their
    junior and senior year in high school. No prior experience in computer
    programming, physics, or electrical engineering is expected but applicants
    typically have strong academic records, especially in math and science.

    Thank you for your help in communicating information about this opportunity
    to girls across the country!

    Harvard is offering free tuition for students that have a family
    income below $40,000. If you are a mentor or have nieces and nephews who
    might be interested, please give them this information. If you know
    anyone/family earning less than $40K with a brilliant child near ready for
    college, please pass this along.

    Harvard's Tuition Announcement Highlights Failure of Prestigious
    Universities to Enroll Low-Income Students March 1, 2004, HarvardUniversity
    announced over the weekend that from now on undergraduate students from
    low-income families will pay no tuition. In making the announcement,
    Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers said, "When only 10 percent of the
    students in Elite higher education come from families in lower half the
    income distribution, we are not doing enough. We are not doing enough in
    bringing elite higher education to the lower half of the income
    distribution."

    If you know of a family earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor
    student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to pay
    the tuition. The prestigious university recently announced that from now on
    undergraduate students from low-income families can go to Harvard for
    free...no tuition and no student loans! To find out more about Harvard
    offering free tuition for families making less than $40,000 a year visit
    Harvard's financial aid web site at:
    :ol('http://adm-is.fas.harvard.edu/FAO/index.htm');>
    http://adm-is.fas.harvard.edu/FAO/index.htm or call the school's financial
    aid office at (617) 495- 1581.

    This initiative puts severe pressure on other well-endowed colleges
    and universities to adopt similar measures. Some commentators believe that
    Harvard's announcement was made in response to Princeton University's
    decision six years ago to eliminate all tuition charges for families earning
    less than $40,000 (adjusted annually to take inflation into account) and its
    subsequent decision three years later to substitute all student loans with
    outright grants. The Harvard announcement indicates that the Princeton plan
    has had some success in drawing to Princeton some of the high-achieving,
    low-income students who typically went to Harvard each year.

    The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education gathers figures from the US
    Department of Education relating to the percentage of students at the
    nation's leading colleges and universities who receive federal financial
    assistance under the Pell Grant program for low-income students.
    These figures provide a good measure of the institution's Relative success
    in enrolling students from the bottom economic sector of the nation's
    families.
