From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A student athlete (sometimes written “student-athlete”) is a participant in an organized competitive sport sponsored by the educational institution in which he or she is enrolled.
Student athletes are usually subject to eligibility rules that may require them to maintain a certain grade point average and may bar them from participating in professional competition. Aside from scholarships, many are also prohibited from receiving special treatment or incentives based on their athletic abilities.
