BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana is going to begin guaranteeing multi-year scholarships to athletes and will agree not to reduce the amount of money students on partial scholarship receive year to year based on illness, injury or ability.
Athletic director Fred Glass told The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1wO2D7m) in a story Friday that the school immediately will begin implementing a 10-point student-athlete bill of rights. It will include significant financial support to former athletes who wish to return to finish their degrees and increased health care commitments.
Earlier this week, the Big Ten said it supports guaranteed four-year scholarships and improved medical coverage for its athletes. In 2012, NCAA members voted to allow Division I schools to offer scholarships guaranteed for more than one year.
