Students at Stanford University will get a year of free digital music, thanks to a gift from an anonymous donor to the college…the univ has signed on Yahoo Music for the service, the first such university deal for Yahoo.

Unlike some other universities, Stanford has declined to pay for students’ subscriptions itself, or use student fees to subsidize the costs. At the end of the trial year (which is being covered by the donor), students’ monthly subscription rates will go up to $1.75 a month for the basic Yahoo subscription, and $4.75 a month for the version compatible with portable devices.

Meawhile, three California universities have picked Cidigix for their services.
