Acclaim for DiscoverScholars.org — Part III

Snarky Behavior, the blog of Jon Host, a contributing writer for the Huffington Post and the Morningside Post, discussed DiscoverScholars.org today.  In a piece entitled “An Innovative Approach to Financial Aid,” Jon says,

I’ve found an interesting idea via Tyler Cowenmatching donors directly with students, thus cutting out the middle-man of the Financial Aid Office.

The organization that arranges the matching is called DiscoverScholars.org, and the guiding principle is that a direct matching process is more transparent, accountable and efficient than the current system schools have in place…

It would be nice to really compete competitively for financial aid based on a transparent matching process.
