WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton received $275,000 for a 2013 speech to the University at Buffalo, and her contract included provisions for a teleprompter and final approval of the set and backdrop.

The university released a nine-page contract it signed with the Harry Walker Agency, which oversees Clinton's speeches. It was obtained through a freedom of information request by the New York-based Public Accountability Initiative.

The university says in a statement Wednesday that no state funding or student tuition revenue was used to pay for Clinton's speech. It says the former secretary of state's fee was covered by ticket sales and other sponsorships and endowments.

Clinton has given several paid speeches at universities since departing the State Department. She says she has donated her fees to her family's philanthropic foundation.
