UO introduces new academic scholarships
$3,000 to $5,000 off tuition, depending on HS GPA and SAT's. I'm no economist, but I believe they call this price discrimination. Good in that it will get UO more top students with good substitutes for UO, hence more elastic demand. On the other hand these will tend to be wealthier students with less need for the discounts. The story also mentions the excellent Pathway Oregon program for low SES students, which tops off federal aid with state money and a very well run tutoring/mentoring program. Pathway Oregon, unfortunately, has not been fully funded for several years. No word on if it will be for 2013.
