their dependents.

University of Colorado faculty want more money from campus vending
machines to be invested in the scholarship fund the school has for
their dependents.

Faculty members say the university’s
scholarship fund for staff members is not keeping pace with similar
programs nationwide and they would like the $750 available to their
dependents one semester every year to be increased to $1,000.

The
university collects about $280,000 annually from the vending machines
but $106,000 of that goes to the Staff Council’s budget. Vice provost
for budget and planning Bill Kaempfer says the university is
considering using general fund money to pay for a Staff Council
position so more money from vending machines can go toward
scholarships.
