Ok then:

Elizabethtown College is offering four-year scholarships to five Syrian refugees as a symbol of its commitment to social justice.

“We’re offering $5,000 additionally to up to five Syrian students who are refugees … in addition to the normal aid that we offer to international students,” school President Dr. Carl Strikwerda told CBS 21, adding that two students have already applied for the program, which requires both an ability to speak English and the same academic credentials expected of other students.

“I think the US is so privileged with our wealth and power and education system, so some countries just don’t have that,” opined student Rachel Engle.
