Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it reimagine the cost of college?

If every graduating student (alumni) contributes $70 a month, a class of 350 students will be able to fund a 2 Year MBA for a needy student at an IVY League B School. That is the power of community. The fund will continue to grow every year as each class graduates, and over a period of time the fund would be large enough to subsidize the cost of education for a majority of need based candidates. A part of the fund would go towards starting low cost Virtual Class Room enabled Learning Centers.
