U.S. Rep. Tony Cardenas this week introduced federal legislation that would require high-revenue sports programs to guarantee scholarship athletes the opportunity to finish their education on academic scholarships if they are cut from their team, provided they maintain their academic standing. Currently, athletic scholarships are renewable on an annual basis and can be revoked at the end of the season; for instance, if an athlete performs poorly, is injured or doesn’t vibe with a new coach. The Collegiate Student-Athlete Protection Act would also require colleges to teach athletes about concussions, life skills and finance strategies, and to cover insurance deductibles and health care premiums for low-income athletes.
