Tulane U. Under Dept. of Education Investigation for ‘Women Only’ Scholarships

Tulane U. Under Dept. of Education Investigation for ‘Women Only’ Scholarships

“possible examples of “financial discrimination” against male students”

This is happening at a few schools now. Give this a year or so and the left might get tired of equality.

The College Fix reports:

Tulane under federal investigation for women-only scholarships

Does it violate Title IX to exclude men as a class from scholarships?

The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is considering the question, opening an investigation into six women-only scholarships offered by the private Tulane University.

In an Aug. 20 letter that PJ Media obtained but did not make public, OCR announced it was looking at scholarships – including the Landor Lewis and Shirley Gauff Awards, the Grace Hopper Celebration Award and the $2,000 Summer Internship Funding Grant – as possible examples of “financial discrimination” against male students.

The office is also reviewing female-only mentoring and internship programs. None of the programs under review has a “parallel” for men, but because of a backlog of Title IX investigations, “it could take years for the OCR to reach a verdict,” according to PJ Media.

Male students are only 42 percent of Tulane enrollment and they are less likely to graduate, making the boost for women more suspect.

Comments

Justice delayed is justice denied.

“Does it violate Title IX to exclude men as a class from scholarships?”

The Rules: “Equal” means, women must be at least equal in all fields. Therefore:

1. If women have less than proportional representation in any field then they may be favored, especially in that field

2. Men may never be favored.

Why? Although Title IX is facially neutral, it does not exist to benefit men.
