HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Two students from Haiti are coming to New Hampshire to continue their studies at Dartmouth College after their university was destroyed by the January earthquake.

Daphnee Charles and Ronel Lefranc won't be pursuing degrees from Dartmouth, but will spend at least the spring semester on campus taking courses mostly in environmental studies and economics.
The students were selected by the Haitian Education and Leadership Program, a scholarship program that will cover their travel and personal expenses.

Dartmouth, which screened the students to ensure they met the Ivy League college's high academic standards, will cover tuition, room and board and health insurance.
