We basically don’t want the intention of assistance from the federal government to be offset by a corresponding and equal reduction in assistance from Harvard, because then it’s not assistance at all, right?

— Alexandra M. Jordan, a Harvard Law School graduate, commenting on a letter that was signed by about 50 current and anticipated future participants of the school’s Low Income Protection Plan (LIPP), which asked that current levels of financial aid be maintained despite the fact that the federal government plans to suspend federal student loan payments and waive interest on those loans due to the coronavirus pandemic. Harvard Law’s LIPP program was created to help graduates working in lower-paying public service or private sector positions.
