Ivy League Wouldn’t Follow NCAA Paying Athletes, Director Says

Ivy League schools won’t pay their athletes, even if the National Collegiate Athletic Association decides to allow universities to give them stipends or cash, said Robin Harris, executive director of the conference.

The league, composed of eight elite schools in the U.S. Northeast, doesn’t provide sports scholarships and holds its athletes to rigorous academic standards. All are members of the NCAA, which will meet this month to discuss rule changes that might allow athletic programs to compensate players either through stipends to cover living expenses or more.
