Last week, Stanford University announced plans to make the prestigious school financially feasible for more students by introducing a “generous financial program.”

Stanford University will essentially waive the $46,000 annual cost for students who come from families with an income of under $125K.

Students whose families make an income of under $65K will not need to pay for room and board either, which can often amount to nearly $15K per year.
