In Cuba, pro-democracy activists (and sometimes even their children) are expelled or denied entry to the country's universities. So, Miami Dade College Provost Rolando Montoya touted the "We are One People" unprecedented scholarship program for these students, giving them the chance to come to the university and learn about a variety of topics, according to the Miami Herald.
Now, 15 Cuban students will take classes in English, computers, business and social studies over the course of six months. Afterwards, they are expected to return to Cuba and teach what they learned to others who don't have the same opportunity. Classes begin Tuesday.
The students are aged 18 to 37, they're different races, and half of them are women.
Thanks to the Foundation of Human Rights in Cuba, $12,000 to $15,000 will go toward's each student's cost of transportation, housing and food.
