    Endowments are not normally so structured. The donor rarely puts 'student loan' in the fine print as the goal, and those who manage the investment portfolio normally have a very different set of priorities. That does not mean we can't pass a law requiring a cut in the action be devoted to defray some costs for former students in need of extra support in the university... Its a drop in the bucket to what is needed but drops can fill small cups that become gallons eventually.

    It's not a drop in the bucket for the Ivy league. Harvard's endowment is almost 40 billion dollars.

    My guess is that former Harvard grads may not be quite as far behind in their loans as some others either.
