You sayTo be eligible, federal verifiable financial need must be displayed.

Does the NCAA oversee this and how does one demonstrate financial need to the NCAA or the Federal government especially for foreign players or maybe they do not have to do so. This seems to be a very nebulous standard, especially when private schools cost $60K + and nearly everyone needs $$$ to pay that. I have no idea how this stuff really works, but I say again, that if a school can give extra scholarships, based on so called financial need that has no definitions and no NCAA oversight, then any school can give unlimited scholarships (no srtudent loans) to men's tennis and presumably all other college sports. If true, the 4.5 schollie limit is completely meaningless in men's tennis. I wish Top Dawg would weigh in on this matter, because he knows a lot about how college tennis works.

I admit that I no nothing about this matter. What do you base your information on? What you have said certainly sheds new light on this 4.5 schollie limit matter, which may mean that WF lust gives full rides to virtually all 15 of its men tennis players.

If allowed as you say, I am surprised that UVA and all P5/D1 schools do not routinely go over the NCAA stated scholarships limits in all sports, because so called need based schollies are not funded by VAF and everyone NEEDS $$$, so let's do it and improve our sports.
