Today Rice University announced to the Houston Chronicle that they will begin to cover the cost of attendance for their student athletes including their football players, starting this year.
The changes comes in the wake of an NCAA rule change that allows Division I schools to add incidental costs to the value of grant-in-aid athletic scholarships.
Rice, a private university, would not release the amount they will pay athletes for the cost of attendance.
“We’re committed to providing cost of attendance and will be phasing it in over time, starting this year,” the school said in a statement released to the Chronicle. “Per university policy, Rice does not comment on specific budgetary details.”
Estimated cost of attendance to Rice, per its financial aid office is totaled at $58,283, with $41,560 toward tuition, $723 for fees, $13,650 for room and board, $800 for books and $1,550 for personal expenses.
