The Supreme Court Gutted Affirmative Action. Race-Based College Scholarships Face Attacks

"The Supreme Court's decision last week banning affirmative action says nothing about scholarships, but aid tied to students' race is already off the table at several large universities," USA Today reports. 

... "'The SCOTUS opinion was squarely focused on institutions’ admissions policies,' Justin Draeger, president and CEO of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, told Inside Higher Ed. 'The highest court in the country took months to deliberate on this issue, and schools should similarly consider any implications on financial aid ... (and) be careful about overreacting.'"
