From the Austin-American Statesman
This should go well.
"The University of Texas athletic department will begin paying athletes directly a maximum-allowable total of $5,980 per academic year as a result of legislative changes tied a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, the school announced.
Starting with the 2022 spring semester, all “eligible” athletes — those who are cleared for competition — will receive $2,990. The second payment of $2,990 will be made in the fall semester. These direct payments, legally deemed to be “additional financial assistance,” were made possible by recent NCAA and Big 12 rule changes that stem from the Alston v. NCAA decision reached by the Supreme Court in June.
This money is payable on top of the assistance athletes get in the form of an athletic scholarship, which covers tuition, books, room and board."
