'U' says potential financial
aid plan not viable
By Adrian Chen
For the Daily The Carolina Covenant - as the I NC

Ice cream mourning

The University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill unveiled a new
financial aid plan earlier this month
that will cover poor students' need
without loans, but officials say such
a plan is not feasible for the Univer-
sity of Michigan at this time.
The Carolina Covenant - as the
UNC financial aid initiative is
called - aims to lift much of the
financial burden of higher educa-
tion from the shoulders of needy
students and their families.
The Covenant pledges to cover
100 percent of the demonstrated
need of these students - without
the use of loans - provided the
student works 10 to 12 hours a
week in a work-study job.
The Covenant applies to students
at or below 150 percent of the fed-
eral poverty level. A family of four
at this level would have an annual
income of about $28,000. Approxi-
mately 8 percent of next year's
freshman class - 281 students -
will be eligible for the program,
said Vince Amoroso, deputy direc-
tor of financial aid and scholarships
at UNC.
Amoroso said the Covenant is
"an out-growth of the university's
desire (for) access to be available to
any student who wants to attend,"
and has the ability and academic
record to succeed at UNC. The
introduction of the Covenant has
led to a flurry of interest in UNC's
financial aid program, said Mike
McFarland, UNC spokesman.
Amoroso said his office has
received "literally hundreds of
inquiries" from parties across the
country interested in the Covenant,

ii -C V11%.,V . .11 . a iC V1
financial aid initiative is called - aims to lift
much of the financial burden of higher
education from the shoulders of needy
students and their families

including the University of Michi-
gan and other public schools.
Pam Fowler, the director of the
University financial aid office eval-
uated the feasibility of a Covenant-
like plan for the University
community.
The University currently has no
loan-free plan for needy students
like the Covenant.
Instead, it "(strives) to achieve a
65/35 ratio of gift aid to self help
aid in the overall (financial aid)
package," Fowler said in a written
statement.
Students normally receive 35 per-
cent of their aid in loans or work-
study programs.
The remaining 65 percent is
drawn from grants available to stu-
dents, which totaled over $85 mil-
lion in the 2001-2002 academic
year. Although Michigan does not guar-
antee 100 percent loan-free financial
aid, Fowler said UNC accounts for only
the direct cost of attendance - such as
books, tuition and housing - when cal-
culating financial aid.
In contrast, the University takes
into consideration such factors as
travel and miscellaneous expenses.
This results in "a student at UNC
(getting) only a little more grant aid
than a student with the same family
contribution at Michigan, because
UNC does not include the miscella-
neous costs that we include,"

Fowler said.
Fowler said the Covenant will
"reduce the total indebtedness" of
needy students at UNC.
But in a phone interview, Fowler
said a plan like the Carolina
Covenant is not being considered at
the University.
The higher amount of out-of-state
students at the University - 32
percent compared to 17 percent at
UNC - and the University's higher
tuition are two major reasons that
such a plan is not financially viable
at this time, she said, as both fac-
tors lead to higher financial aid
needs, and a greater stress on
resources.
In her statement, Fowler outlines the
increases in financial aid funding that
would be needed to implement a
Covenant-like plan at the University.
Fowler said that while UNC esti-
mates the total cost of their plan to
be $1.38 million after four years,
the University would require an
additional $844,272 in grant fund-
ing this year alone.
Fowler said that the current state
of the economy prevents these
funds from being raised. She did
not, however, rule out a Covenant-
like plan for the future, "that main-
ly depends on the success of the
upcoming capital drive during
which we hope to raise funds for
financial aid."

Andrea Zoll takes a moment to reflect on the broken ice cream
machine in Markley's dining hall yesterday.

Two sentenced for murder of Detroit hunters

STANDISH - A jury yesterday con-
victed Raymond and Donald Duvall of
first-degree murder in the deaths of two
Detroit area hunters who disappeared 18
years ago.
The six-man, six-woman jury in
Arenac County Circuit Court deliberat-
ed about two hours before returning the
verdicts. Donald "Coco" Duvall, 51, of
Monroe, and Raymond "J.R." Duvall,

52, of South Branch, now face sentences
of life in prison without the possibility
of parole.
"God answered my prayers," said
Helen Ognjan, mother of Brian Ognjan,
27, of St. Clair Shores.
He and David Tyll, 27, of Troy, never
returned from a hunting trip to Northern
Michigan in November 1985. Their bod-
ies have never been found.

Prosecutors charged the Duvalls after
a woman came forward claiming to have
witnessed the Duvalls attack the hunters
on a dark, snowy night across the road
from her home in rural Oscoda County.
Prosecutors told jurors in closing
arguments yesterday that the Duvall
brothers savagely bludgeoned Ogn-
jan and Tyll to death and should pay
the price after getting away with it

for too long. "Don't reward the
defendants for 18 years of lies and
intimidation," state prosecutor
Donna Pendergast said.
Defense attorney Seymour
Schwartz said he was disappointed
with the verdict against his client,
Donald Duvall and would seek to
appeal.
Defense attorneys had argued

that the state had not met its burden
of proof beyond a reasonable doubt
and said the case against the
Duvalls depended overwhelmingly
on the testimony of an admitted
drunkard whose story made no
sense.
"We don't know what happened,
but we do know they didn't do it,"
Schwartz said.
