10 Colleges With Largest Financial Endowments: US News And World Report

The 10 Richest Colleges

Harvard University is the richest school in the country, as it has been for the past several years.

US News And World Report recently compiled a list of the country's richest colleges. Harvard is by far the richest -- its endowment is almost double of its next closest competition, Yale University.

The Report has more:

Of the 1,189 ranked colleges that reported endowment figures to U.S. News, the average endowment was roughly $313,182,000.

Individual reports ranged from Harvard University on the high end to Providence Christian College's $15,000, the lowest reported endowment. Though Harvard's endowment far outpaced even the next-highest school on the list (Yale University, with $19,174,387,000), 66 ranked colleges had endowments of more than $1 billion each.
