Hillsdale College Says No to Any Government Aid

Hillsdale College announced today it will no longer accept state taxpayer money for student scholarships and financial aid.

The state money that students were scheduled to receive will be replaced by privately raised funds.

Students at the private liberal arts college got about 670 thousand dollars in state tuition aid and scholarships last year.

Hillsdale has not taken any federal taxpayer money since its founding in 1844.

Now the college won't take any state taxpayer money, either.

That likely makes it one of only a handful of colleges across the nation to refuse all government money.

Hillsdale officials said the action continues the college's historic independence from government regulation of its operations and curriculum.
