It's tough for student athletes to play and work a job. So there is a proposal
out to the NCAA to give students athletes $2,000 grants.
NCAA president Mark Emmert said Monday that he supports a proposal to allow conferences to increase grants to student athletes by $2,000, "to more closely approach" the full cost of attending college, beyond the athletic scholarships athletes receive for tuition, fees, room, board and books. Emmert said he'll also ask the board to allow colleges and universities to provide multiyear grants, instead of year-to-year grants.
