Financially Compensate NCAA Student-Athletes.
College student-athletes are expected to perform both academically and athletically day in and day out. However, being a student-athlete requires handling a grueling schedule that a normal student wouldn’t have to go through. Because of this student-athletes have no time for a job that can provide them with food and items outside of what their scholarship can provide. A majority of college Student-Athletes rely on scholarships to be able to afford to attend a college or university. Many don’t come from a rich background and have to do with what a scholarship can give them.
This leads to many students going hungry at times of the night. It’s also not like they can take free stuff either from coaches, family, friends etc. because their participation would be at risk. The NCAA does not allow student-athletes to accept gifts or donations.
