WUNC reports: UNC leaders want to keep more top science and math students in-state

WUNC’s Jason Debruyn traces college enrollment trends of NCSSM graduates, and reports on the possible reinstatement of a tuition waiver grant for NCSSM students attending a North Carolina public university in a recently published story from North Carolina Public Radio. 

“University leaders say too many of North Carolina’s top high school students choose out-of-state colleges, and they want to do something about it,” writes Debruyn. “To keep these top students in state, the University of North Carolina System wants to offer free tuition to any graduate of the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics who attends a North Carolina public university. The proposal, which requires General Assembly approval, would cost taxpayers an estimated $1.5 million annually.”
