The University of Missouri at Columbia spend $1.6 million a year on women's athletic scholarships and $1.9 million on athletic scholarships for men. In that $300,000 gap lies a violation of an aspect of Title IX, the federal law born to eliminate discrimination against women in education, especially in intercollegiate athletics. Other schools show similar gaps. A Post-Dispatch analysis shows that even while spending more in total for scholarships for male athletes, these schools are giving men less and women more than their fair shares under Title IX. The newspaper's findings contradict an impression of widespread discrimination against women in college athletic scholarships.
