Yale and Brown Uni­ver­sity are among the latest col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties to promise free tuition to stu­dents as part of the Say Yes to Edu­ca­tion compact.

New York City-​​based Say Yes announced the addi­tion of 10 insti­tu­tions on Friday.

Say Yes offers locally funded tuition schol­ar­ships to Buf­falo and Syra­cuse public school stu­dents who attend a public two– or four-​​year college.

Pri­vate insti­tu­tions typ­i­cally waive tuition for qual­i­fied Say Yes stu­dents whose family income is below $75,000 a year.

The other newly added col­leges are: the Mass­a­chu­setts Insti­tute of Tech­nology; Wash­ington Uni­ver­sity in St. Louis; Williams Col­lege in Williamstown, Mass.; Smith Col­lege in Northampton, Mass.; Trinity Col­lege in Hart­ford, Conn.; Kenyon Col­lege in Gam­bier, Ohio; Muh­len­berg Col­lege in Allen­town, Pa. and North­eastern Uni­ver­sity in Boston.
