UNC Launching Program To Encourage Athletes To Finish Degrees
Univ. of North Carolina Chancellor Carol Folt today announced plans for "Complete Carolina," a program to "give financial and counseling support to former athletes to encourage them to finish their degrees." The effort will be "completely funded by the athletic department and will start accepting applications Sept. 1." Folt said that former athletes "will be able to resume their scholarship at support commensurate with their scholarship if they left the university in good standing" (NEWSOBSERVER.com, 7/24).
