Researchers Find ECO Intervention Project Paying Off for Select Low-Income Students

The more that high-achieving, low-income students know about financial aid and quality at a given college, the less likely they are to base their decisions about where to go to college on what they hear from friends and family.

That is one of the key findings of a new study that provides a deeper look at the effects of the Expanding College Opportunities project, an intervention known as ECO. The project includes providing students help with their college applications, customized information about financial aid and net costs, application fee waivers and parental guidance.
