Out-of-state athletes keep tuition break

Thursday, August 06, 2009

One interest group is emerging from North Carolina's new budget unscathed: state universities' athletic booster clubs. Taxpayers will continue to pick up the tab for granting in-state tuition to out-of-state athletes at a cost of $10 million a year. That means that booster clubs that fund the athletic scholarships, such as the Rams Club have only to cover the lesser in-state tuition rate. (Raleigh News & Observer)
