Report: Financial aid reduces likelihood of donations to universities

As institutions of higher education become more reliant on alumni contributions, new research from a Princeton University economics professor has found students who receive financial aid in the form of loans and scholarships are less likely to donate to their alma maters, regardless of personal income.

According to Harvey S. Rosen, a professor of economics and business policy at Princeton University, scholarship recipients are less likely to be in the top 10 percent of givers in their class in any given year — but it’s not because they have relatively low incomes after they graduate.  (Eder, NJBIZ)
