Tulane University is doing its part to lend a helping hand to college students in Puerto Rico who were displaced by Hurricane Maria. The college is offering them a semester at its New Orleans, Louisiana campus with free tuition.
“Today, we’re making good on our offer of help by offering a tuition-free guest semester program for students from universities and colleges in Puerto Rico,” the university says in a post on its admissions department blog. “After Katrina, universities and colleges around the world took in our students with open arms; it’s now our turn to pay it forward and assist students in need.”
The post directs Puerto Rican students to fill out an application for the semester on the website and to pay spring tuition to their home college. Tulane also says it will provide dedicated advisors and support staff to those displaced students.
