Whereas the purchase of books, sourcepacks, and other types of course-related literature is necessary for the academic well-being of Harvard undergraduates; and Whereas the cost of course-related literature is an unavoidable expense for every student; and Whereas the increasing cost of course-related literature has particular impact on the lowest income students; and Whereas the cost of necessary literature should not be prohibitive to, nor impede the academic progress of, any student attending this College; Be it therefore resolved that we support the establishment of the Course-Cost Assistance Program (C-CAP), to be administered through the Financial Aid Office, which will provide a per semester stipend of $125 for undergraduates with family incomes of less than $40,000 per year and a $75 per semester stipend for undergraduates with family incomes of between $40,000 and $60,000, towards the purchase of books, sourcepacks, and other types of course-related literature.
