 Green = Tuition, Purple = Average U Scholarship

Myth of the High Tuition - High Aid Model

At the University of Minnesota 

Kudos to the Daily!

Since 2000, annual tuition at the University of Minnesota has risen more than $7000 for residents, a jump of about 165 percent.

The University gave out $35 million more in scholarships in 2010 than it did in 2000 and the percentage of students who receive funding from the school has risen from 15 to 36 percent.

In 2000-01 an average scholarship from the school covered 60 percent of resident tuition. Last year, it covered 33 percent.
