Haitian Students at U.S. Colleges Eligible for Emergency Grants
The Institute of International Education announced Wednesday that it is offering grants of up to $2,000 to undergraduate and graduate students from Haiti studying here.
The nonprofit advocacy organization headquartered in New York tracks international students in the U.S. It says more than 850 are from Haiti.
Colleges with eligible students can nominate them for the grants. The organization says the number of grants given out will depend on available funds; a grand total hasn't been determined.
The grants are for Haitian citizens here on student visas; American citizens and permanent residents are not eligible.
