The wealthiest colleges and universities have the fewest Pell-eligible students

Hmmm.  Why am I not surprised? From Lynn O'Shaughnessy's blog, The College Solution.

The Nation’s 15 Richest and Stingiest Colleges
Are the nation’s wealthiest colleges also the stingiest?

It’s easy to make that conclusion when you look at an analysis released today by The Chronicle of Higher Education that examined the number of poor students that the nation’s 50 wealthiest colleges are educating.

Less than 15% of students attending the 50 richest colleges in the 2008-2009 school year were considered poor. In contrast, 26% of students who attend other four-year colleges — state and non-profit private institutions - are considered low income.
