In most stories set at an expensive and prestigious school [[LuxuryTropes largely populated by rich kids]], there will be one -- and usually only one -- student who's [[PovertyTropes middle-class or even poor]]. Usually this student is there on a scholarship (as the trope name indicates), but sometimes there's another reason for their being there -- maybe one of their parents teaches there so their tuition is discounted or free, or maybe their parents just scraped together the money to give their child the best education they could.

could. In some cases, the student doesn't have a "scholarship" so much as a "loan", or has some combination of loans, scholarships, and/or grants.

* Isaac Newton attended Trinity College, Cambridge as a subsizar, meaning that his tuition was fully waived in return for being on call to do menial labour around the school--which usually took the form of serving the paying students their dinner (called ''sizings'' because they came in set portions and set prices).

* Demi Lovato's character Mitchie from ''CampRock''. Sort, of: it's a summer camp, not a school.
* In ''TheBox,'' the protagonists' son attends a private school because the mom is a teacher there and they get a discount. [[AliensAreBastards Then aliens screw them out of it]]. ItMakesSenseInContext.

* A subversion in ''TheSlumsOfBeverlyHills''. While the schools in the 90210 area code seem to be public, the protagonist's father keeps moving around within the district so his kids can attend what he considers to be "better" schools than the ones in poorer areas.

* Sharo in ''Manga/GochuumonWaUsagiDesuKa'' is one, [[DeconstructedTrope and actually regrets it]], as this caused confidence issues arising from her need to socialize with [[PennyAmongDiamonds peers that are not in her socioeconomic group]].

* In ''Literature/TheTraitorGame'', coming from what's implied to be a fairly low-income household is one of many reasons why Michael has an inferiority complex.

* Downplayed in ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' where two of the characters ([[BigLittleBrother Yukio]] and [[FaceOfAThug Ryuji]]) are scholarship students and in the same class (the Advanced A class) thus. The actual lead [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]] is ''[[BookDumb not]]'' a scholarship student and in fact only gets in thanks to his new guardian being the headmaster there, as much as his half-demon and desire to be an exorcist does. He's thus in 1-D (also known as the lowest rank for classes).
