Keep in mind that this scholarship comes from the athletic department and not the general scholarship fund. Justin isn’t taking any money from another student who needs it more. He’s taking it from another football player that the UCLA coaches felt wasn’t as deserving on the field as Justin.The best scenario is that Justin’s dad donates money to the general scholarship fund at UCLA which would benefit a more needy student. It could be designated for that. And how do we know that Sean Combs isn’t planning on doing that? How do we know he hasn’t already done it? (Source: bleacherreport.com)
