Classic Arts News   Yale Music School Will End Tuition Thanks to $100 Million Donation
 
A $100 million donation to the Yale School of Music means that the school will no longer have to charge tuition, the New York Times reports.

According to the Times, the gift, which has been promised by an anonymous donor and will be spread out over the next few years, is one of the largest ever pledged to a music school.

The money will also go toward exchanges with foreign conservatories for students, faculty, and ensembles, and toward Internet broadcasts of the school's events.

The Yale School of Music currently has 211 students, and tuition costs $23,750 per year. Free tuition will begin next year.
