Stanford University extends financial aid to families with $125,000 incomes

Students at Stanford University.

Stanford is trying to make it easier for middle class families to attend the university. It's expanding financial aid eligibility to families with incomes up to $125,000 a year. The limit was $100,000

Also, the university will pay for the whole ride -- tuition, room and board for families making $65,000 a year or less, before, it was $60,000. The increased financial aid is made possible by Stanford's huge endowment -- $21 billion as of last year.
