100 Million Dollar Donation for Yale's School of Music

Yale announced that it has received a donation in the amount of 100 million dollars for its graduate music school from donors who wish to remain anonymous. The donation will be spread out over several years.

The donation, one of the largest to date, will allow students to attend the school free of tuition beginning in 2006. This puts it in the same league as Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music which also charges no tuition.

Yale's graduate music program currently has an enrollment of 211 students. Yale says the money will also help to fund other programs such as internet broadcasts of Yale music programs as well as outreach into the New Haven, Connecticut community.
