Northern Illinois University is offering a tuition waiver for students who are passionate about volunteer work.

The Huskies Service Scholars Program requires low-income freshmen transfer students to perform 300 hours of community service for one academic year.

Once completed, they will get $1,132 taken off their tuition bill.

The program is also recruiting students to serve as mentors.
