Bloomberg gives $1 billion to Hopkins to make tuition free for most medical students

Most students pursuing medical degrees at Johns Hopkins University will receive free tuition, thanks to a $1 billion gift from businessman Michael Bloomberg’s philanthropic organization.

Starting in the fall semester, students who come from households earning less than $300,000 will have their tuition paid for, while students whose households bring in less than $175,000 will have their tuition, fees and living expenses paid for, the university announced Monday.

Nearly two-thirds of current and incoming students to the medical school will be eligible for the benefits.
