Eastern Michigan University is expanding its "You Are Welcome Here" campaign.
Starting in 2019, the university will begin awarding a new annual scholarship to two international students that will pay for half of their tuition.
It's part of a larger effort by EMU to express support for international students and encourage more of them to come to its campus.
"This is a priority of his to increase international enrollment, and it's particularly important to do this given some of the anti-immigrant rhetoric that is coming out from our nation’s capital," says Larcom.
Larcom says EMU currently hosts more than one thousand international students from 80 different countries.
