The school that took in $5 million in scholarship money last year and is now asking students to pony up the money can’t be sure it will keep that money.
Mizzou University is asking students who have earned a $1,000 scholarship to pony it up, according to a report from the New York Times.
Mozart, the school’s renowned ballet program, announced on Friday that it will be offering up to $1.5 million to students who earn a scholarship and a maximum of $5,000 per year.
The money will go to the school, which is expected to make about $4 million from its new $5.3 billion athletic department.
The school is offering up scholarships for students who earned the maximum $5k per year in 2014-15 and the maximum of the scholarship in 2018-19, according the report.
