The University of Iowa’s Board of Regents meets Thursday, on the agenda, a plan to change the controversial “Student Set-Aside” program.

As it stands now, about 20-percent of tuition dollars goes to fund scholarships for low-income students.

In September, regents proposed a new plan, which calls for the legislature funding the scholarships.  In turn, tuition dollars would pay other university expenses.

The regents will discuss the proposal in Iowa City Thursday.
