Universidad de Las Americas-Puebla—the Mexican sister school of Texas Christian University—has reinstated 571 scholarships after three days of protest, the Daily Skiff reports. On Sunday, the troubled school announced a "restructuring" of its scholarship program, which canceled hundreds of scholarships and prompted hundreds of students to take to the streets. "For now the demonstration has ended," said a student involved in negotiating the return of the scholarships. "But there are still many things to solve and many things to improve."
