You should see how much free clothing college athletes get
If you qualified for the Pell Grant, you got a $250 clothing check per semester from the athletic department.
What would happen is that you would get $250 to spend on clothes. And you had to bring back the receipts to the compliance office to prove you spent that money on clothes.
What people would do would be to buy an expensive pair of shoes or something, and get 2 receipts. They would give one receipt to compliance, and then return the shoes with the other receipt and pocket the cash. That is what I would do, and others would do with their clothing check.
Giving athletes a stipend for clothes, razors, toothpaste, etc. would just see abuses like that.
