Tuition grant increased for children
Princeton NJ — The University’s Benefits Committee has reviewed the Children’s Educational Assistance Plan and has increased the amount of the annual tuition grant for the 2007-08 academic year.
The Tuition Grant Program provides assistance for an eligible employee’s child who is pursuing undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college.
The Tuition Grant Program provides assistance for an eligible employee’s child who is pursuing undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college. For 2007-08, the University will provide a maximum annual tuition grant of one-half tuition and mandatory educational fees up to $11,840 ($5,920 per semester or $3,946.66 per trimester or quarter), an increase from last year’s maximum grant of $11,360.
Beginning with the 2007 fall term, employees who have a child with a disability that requires an academic accommodation may be eligible to receive a taxable grant. For special consideration, contact Stacey Burd at 258-9114.
