NCAA Gradually Giving PSU Scholarships

PSU_2013 [1]The NCAA Executive Committee will gradually restore football scholarships to Penn State’s football program, due to the school’s “continued progress toward ensuring athletics integrity.”

Beginning in 2014-15, five additional initial scholarships will be restored to the football team. That number, according to the NCAA, will continue to increase.

The action is based on the recommendation of former U.S. Senator George Mitchell and endorsed by the Division I Board of Directors.

“Providing relief from the scholarship restrictions will give more student-athletes an opportunity to attend Penn State on athletics scholarship while also creating an incentive for the university to continue its progress under new leadership after President Erickson’s impending departure,” Mitchell said in the official release.
