In-Text Examples According, Dorfman (2013) college athletes receive several sources of funding, such as scholarships, stipends, educational expenses, etc., that amount to $125,000. He also argued that student athletes receive training and medical funding that most nonathletic students do not have access to. Similarly, athletes are provide meal plans that supplement the cost of shopping and groceries (Johnson, 2014). Thus, it seems that student athletes are receiving compensation for their hard work, but just not in the form of a salary in which most athletes desire (Student athletes want, 2010).
