CO Students Denied Funds to Attend Conservative Political Action Conference
Students at University of Colorado Boulder have been denied funds to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Aslinn Scott and two other female students from the Colorado Federation of College Republicans sought $800 to help pay for the cost of traveling to CPAC, which kicks off on March 6.
Scott said that the student government initially approved them for funding, but then she got an email that said they would not get the funds because the event is a partisan activity.
On “Fox and Friends” this morning, Scott said that she and the other students are being denied funding because the school claims they’re “too partisan, too political and too conservative.”
The school said in a statement, “Fees may not be used in support of or opposition to political candidates or for political parties. Requests for student fee support of partisan political activities will not be entertained.”
Scott told “The College Fix” that the school funds liberal events all the time. She said the student government funds student groups that support legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage, and it pays for immigration reform and atheist speakers on campus.
