Representatives from 65 schools in the five largest conferences (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, SEC) and 15 student-athlete representatives (three from each conference) met to vote on changes enabled by the NCAA's new autonomy structure, which enables the Big Five to set certain standards.  They approved several important changes, including raising the limit on scholarship money to cover the "total cost of attendance".  This could mean that certain schools and athletes in certain sports could see more money, to cover expenses like travel expenses and academic-related supplies.  The delegates also approved a change that prevents a scholarship from being revoked for athletic reasons.
