Brandeis Rejects NDEA
Funds; Hits Loyalty Oath

The board of trustees of
Brandeis University, by unani-
mous vote, resolved to reject
student loan funds under the
National Defense Education Act
as long as provisions of the act
require student applicants to
sign a controversial loyalty dis-
claimer and affidavit.
In taking this action, Brandeis
joins a growing list of leading
educational institutions around
the nation who have withdrawn
from the NDEA student loan
program because of the requir-
ed affidavit. Included in this
list are Harvard, Yale, Prince-
ton and approximately 20 other
outstanding colleges and univer-
sities.
