A recent study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research examined the effects of a targeted-outreach campaign for low-income students at the University of Michigan. It concluded, that by offering a few extra dollars a university could go a long way towards enticing more high achieving students from low income and minority backgrounds to apply to their prestigious school.
