Remembrance Day brings offer of free tuition, rez room and food plan

by

When it comes to honouring Canadian veterans, McMaster University is putting its money where its mouth is. Timed to coincide with Remembrance Day, McMaster announced that it would offer free tuition to the sons and daughters of Canadian Forces soldiers killed in active missions. The offer extends to deceased soldiers’ children who are under 26 and enrolled in full-time undergraduate programs. It includes free tuition for four years of study, and a free residence room and meal plan for the first year.

What’s your take on the announcement? Is it McMaster’s patriotism? Or a PR move?
