Minnesota's Commitment to International Education. A Case-Study of State Legislation in Support of Foreign Students.
Mestenhauser, Josef A.
The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyze a recent experience with the passage of legislation in Minnesota that gave financial relief to foreign students in public and private colleges. This bill provides for (1) grants of authority to public institutions to waive the nonresident rate of tuition, while expecting the grantees to pay at the resident rate; (2) grant of funds for emergency scholarships; and (3) grants of authority to waive nonresident tuition to private donations from Minnesota corporations, individuals, and foundations given to foreign students for the purpose of paying tuition fees. Finally, the bill provides that benefits under it would be first given as if they were loans, which would be forgiven if the grantees returned to their home countries for 5-years. (Author)
