NCAA Settlement: How former FBS scholarship athletes can collect money *Share*

Were you a college football or basketball player given a scholarship from 2010-2017?  If you were you maybe eligible to collect some money.  One of my twitter followers Samuel Oyenuga who played at New Mexico State, tweeted me something to help get out the word. So that is what I am doing.

If you played Football or basketball for the NCAA between 2010 and 2017 log in here and fill out these forms to be reimbursed unpaid grants.

This sounds like it is for FBS players right now, If you are a D2 player or a FCS player and it works, please let me know on Twitter @DraftDiamonds. It is easy, you can get help from EssayOnTime.

This is if you were on scholarship. This is because scholarship money never increased even when the cost of living and tuition went up. Here is how you do it:

Step 1: Get your NCAA eligibility number from here, athletes should already have an account. They either made one in high school or when they got on campus
Step 2: Once logged in check the to top right hand corner for the silhouette and Click on it. your NCAA iD number will pop up
Step 3: copy your eligibility # and log in to the grant settlement site
Step 4: Once logged in you can see how much the NCAA owes you

This is a class action case and according to the site the funds could change by September 20th.  This case is being presented in California.

The NCAA and 11 major athletic conferences have reached a tentative class action settlement that, if approved by U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken, would end In Re: National Collegiate Athletic Association Athletic Grant-in-Aid Cap Antitrust litigation. This case is more widely known as former West Virginia University running back Shawne Alston’s class action lawsuit against the NCAA. Since 2014, Alston and later co-plaintiffs have argued that the NCAA and its members, by agreeing to cap the maximum grant-in-aid at less than the full cost of attending a college, unlawfully conspired to deny student-athletes the full cost of attending their respective schools.
