(Cambridge, MA) Harvard gets its largest gift yet of $150 million.

Hedge Fund Chief Ken Griffin will fund full scholarships for 200 Harvard undergraduates and provide matching funds for another 600 students.

Griffin said the scholarships are aimed at students who have done well academically against tough odds.

Harvard tuition runs around $39,000 a year.

When you factor in room and board, it will set students back about $56,000.
