harvard graduate school of education (HGSE) is
offering 25 tuition-free spaces for the fall semester
for students of education whose campuses were
destroyed by the hurricane.

the dean of the grad school, its not up on the website
yet, but i know its real...
HGSE will be assisting students of education who will
not be able to return to their fall studies. Several
universities have lost their campuses as a result of
the hurricane. We will be offering 25 students an
opportunity to study here, tuition free, in the fall
as special status students. They will be able to
enroll in courses and to transfer credit to their home
institutions. We will make every effort to assist
students with housing needs as well. FAS and the
professional schools each plan to meet the needs of
displaced students in a similar manner. Jim Stiles is
doing outreach with other schools and departments of
education, and we will also be announcing this program
prominently on our web site. (www.gse.harvard.edu)
