HOLLAND, Mich. — About two dozen students at a small college in western Michigan will attend school without paying tuition in the fall.
It's part of a new plan to ease the financial burden in exchange for contributions after students graduate.
Hope College, a private liberal arts school in Holland, has roughly 3,100 students.
College President Matthew Scogin says he wants to see graduates leave campus ready to launch a career without being burdened by tuition debt.
The goal is to eventually cover tuition for all students through scholarships, which would mean increasing the college’s endowment.
