This fall, the State University of New York will enroll 150 Chinese students who were affected by the earthquake in Sichuan province in May, covering their tuition and living expenses, the Chronicle of Higher Education writes. The agreement, which includes 22 SUNY campuses and was negotiated with the Chinese government, stipulates that the students agree to return home after a year to rebuild the local economy.

SUNY plans to raise $5 million privately for tuition and living expenses, while the Chinese government will pay travel and visa costs.
