BU started a pilot program very recently where a few sports including men’s lax are getting a very small amount of scholarship dollars (less than one equivalency). The amount is so small that at best it can be a tiebreaker in certain cases when added to need-based aid.
However the first beneficiaries of this program will not be enrolled until next year, so it has not been a factor in BU’s success in lax. Come back in three years and it may have a little bit of influence. Hopefully the program will be expanded.
