Women scholarships t
will come this fall
(Col tins rdiive Pagel)
said Athletic Direcitr Set tan-
ham. "How they will he distri-
buted will be decided by the
women's athletic director."
The long-expected break wilh
tradition is a significant step
for Michigan's women's sports
program, which includes seven
varsity sports: swimming, ten-
nis, basketball, volleyball, gym
nastics, field hocke\ and syn-
How the scholarships will be
divided between the various
sports is up to recently appoint-
ed women's Athletic Director
"We are considering the en-
tire range of possibilities, said
Hunt. "Whether they are limit-
ed to just seniors, or the best
player on a team, will be de-
cided in the next couple of
Neither the exact number of
scholarships to be awarded nor
the total amount of money in-
volved has been announced. But
the money used will come from
the men's scholarship fund.
"These scholarships are in
addition to the men's," said
Canham. "The majority of the
funds for men's scholarships
comes from contributions. We
are now going to start fund-
raising for women."
Last week, Michigan State be-
came the n i n t h conference
school to announce such a plan.
The eventual goal of schools
giving scholarships to women is
i> rie women's sports to the
status of men's non-revenue
sports. Revenue sports at Mich-
i-1 are football, basketball and
'I agree with that (goal),"
said Canham. "That's the gen-
erally accepted position all over
th Big Ten."
Though Hunt did not say who
would get the scholarships, she
did say who definitely would
not. In order to steer clear of
the sometimes shady world of
recruiting, freshwomen will not
be eligible for scholarships.
"Recruiting is a problem,"
said Hunt. "To avoid it we're
not giving scholarships to fresh-
men, though a number of in-
stitutions do. We're going to
give them to the upperclassmen
who have proven their ability."
When asked if such a policy
would hurt Michigan's chances
of landing the better high school
athletes, Hunt said, "I hope it
won't. I hope they will come for
the excellent athletic and aca-
demic programs. I hope Mich-
igan will sell itself."
Canham said the number of
scholarships will increase over
the years as the fund-raising,
which he heads, gathers mo-
Michigan's women swimmers will be eligible for athletic scholarships in the fall as well as
women student-athletes in five other sports.; gymnastics, basketball, field hockey, tennis, and
volleyball. Athletic Director Don Canham confirmed the new policy yesterday. The Michigan
women's swimming team, pictured above, won the 1976 Big Ten championships.
