3. Stipends or Tuition Cuts?

DePauw University advertised to remote students that grants would be provided to help to support off-campus students. According to Vice President of Student Academic Life Alan Hill, there were two grants that were provided to students. The Technology Grant was provided to every student who was classified as remote for this semester. The Professional Development Grant was provided to all juniors and seniors enrolled in DePauw University for the fall semester.  Students received tuition cuts instead of additional funds.
