Daily Compliance Item- 8/13/14- 15.3.4.1- Increasing Athletic Aid

Corn R. Kick is a men’s soccer student-athlete at Ocean State University who is receiving a 50% athletic scholarship for the 2014-15 academic year.  Preseason practice started last week, and the head coach found out that he has only awarded 9.6 of the 9.9 NCAA maximum number of scholarships. The coach would like to use this 30% to increase Corn’s scholarship.  Since the period of award has already begun, is it possible to increase Corn’s aid?
Yes.  NCAA Bylaw 15.3.4.1 states that institutional financial aid may be increased for any reason at any time. (Adopted: 1/11/94, Revised: 2/26/03, 4/23/08, 10/27/11 effective 8/1/12; awards may be executed before 8/1/12)
