They’re not paychecks, but major college athletes got extra scholarship stipends for first time this school year

Full-scholarship athletes at major programs were given about $2,000 to $5,000 more per year

Money went for food, gas and to help some players' families back home

Smaller athletic programs, like UMKC and Missouri State, are still phasing in full “cost of attendance” to players
