    Does anybody know how scholarships actually work? Does the athletic department have to write a check to the university for the tuition and boarding of scholarship athletes or does the university just waive the fees? I would assume that things like books, study materials and food would have to actually be paid for.

    I can only tell you how the GI Bill works. Doubt they have all that much in common. ;)

    Transfer of funds from athletic department. It's done four times per year; fall and spring semester and then the two summer sessions. (Likely five in some instances where kids are taking "interim courses.")
