News from my alma mater (click for a bit of the history as posted here):
Antioch College is offering four-year, 100% tuition-free Horace Mann Fellowships to 25 students entering as freshmen this fall, 2011, when the college reopens
Background: A group of alumni formed a nonprofit and purchased the College from the University, its parent in 2009. The purchase includes the beautiful and historic 1200-acre campus in Yellow Springs, Ohio, one of the largest pieces of educational real estate in the country. Alumni came together to reopen the college, reinvent what a sustainable 4-year college education should be in the 21st century, and reinvest in our country’s and planet’s future.
Antioch is now ready to admit the first class in the fall of 2011. You might know a young person ready for college who would be interested. If so, please let us know. We expect to have an exemplary first class, and we are reaching out to interested parties to help us spread the word. Our application deadline is March 1, 2011. See this web site for more details:
