Education
Undergraduate Degree

The University of Notre Dame’s endowment provides nearly $100 million in financial aid annually to help students pay for college. Less than a generation ago, in 1990, the number was around $5 million. They’ve been able to keep pace with the rapidly growing financial needs of students, in part, by making smart investments in private equity.
