This semester, The Daily Gazette is conducting a large-scale investigation into financial aid at Swarthmore, with plans to publish our findings at the end of the semester. Part of this investigation requires getting student feedback, in order to ensure as large and accurate a sample as possible.
The Daily Gazette is hoping to look into the trends (e.g. increases or decreases) in student aid awards over four years at Swarthmore. Therefore, the most useful information will be that of seniors or alumni who have been on financial aid during their time at Swarthmore. However, underclassmen are encouraged to add their data to the pool as well.
