LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Scholarships for University of Kentucky student-athletes on all 22 Wildcat teams will cover the full cost of attendance starting with the 2015-16 season.
Kentucky athletics director Mitch Barnhart announced Wednesday the full cost-of-attendance scholarships will be offered to current and prospective players.
The NCAA last month passed a measure allowing member institutions to supplement scholarships.
The university said in a news release that in addition to fully funding the maximum amount of scholarships with tuition, fees, room, board and books, UK Athletics will provide the maximum allowable cost of attendance.
