Athletics awards given to individual student-athletes shall be limited to those approved or administered by the member institution, its conference or an approved agency and shall be limited in value and number as specified by the NCAA. Awards received for intercollegiate athletics participation may not be sold, exchanged or assigned for another item of value, even if the student-athlete’s name or picture does not appear on the award.
The following are some examples of NON-PERMISSIBLE awards:
• Cash - An individual may not receive a cash award for athletics participation.
• Gift Certificates/Merchandise
• Country Club or Sports-Club Memberships - An award of a country club or sports-club membership is strictly prohibited, even if the cost of the membership is below the maximum award value permitted by NCAA legislation.
Cash or any other award that an individual could not receive under NCAA legislation may not be forwarded in the individual’s name to a different individual or agency (e.g., Binghamton University).
