Ucla College Bosses Defend Scholarship For Sean Combs' Son
The promising American football star, 18, will become a Bruin later this year (12) after winning a place at the college, but critics believe his multi-millionaire dad should be footing the bill for the teenager's education, which will be funded by a $54,000 (£33,750) grant.
UCLA spokesman Ricardo Vasquez tells the Los Angeles Times the college has a "robust financial aid programme", and adds the money used for merit-based athletic scholarships was funded by "ticket sales, corporate partnerships, media contracts and private donations".
He says, "There is a big separation between financial aid based on need and how that’s funded and how athletic scholarships are funded and awarded to students."
