Rendell: State-related schools to get stimulus $$$
Governor Rendell said today that $42 million of federal stimulus money appropriated to Pennsylvania will be used to support Pennsylvania’s four state-related universities: Penn State, Pitt, Temple, and Lincoln.
Hopefully the money is not just divided into quarters, as Penn State has 92,633 students compared to a combined 66,671 students at the other three universities. If the money is divided on a per student basis, Penn State would receive approximately $24 million. That’s probably not going to happen, but that $24 million seems familiar… oh yeah, that’s how much Penn State wanted its appropriations increased.
Graham Spanier is in Harrisburg today meeting with state officials about our budget. He told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
“That doesn’t represent an increase in our budget,” said Penn State President Graham B. Spanier. “It just gets us back to zero.”
