Wisconsin looking at Irish Free Fees Idea

11 December 2006 | Ireland | No Responses by paul savage.

The state of Wisconsin in the US, is looking into the possibility of offering students free tution for 4 years of college if they promise to stay and work in the state for up to 10 years.

Apparently the commission was so impressed with the turn around in the Irish economy, with the introduction of free fees in 1990’s, that they wanted to try it out for themselves. And see if it could give the struggling state some upper hand in retaining their new graduates. In Ireland this program costs the Irish government 2.5 billion a year, and it could possibly cost the state of Wisconsin significantly more.
