Abstract

For decades, the National College Athletic Association has been using their collegiate players for their names, images, and likenesses without giving those players compensation for it. The NCAA believes just because they supply athletes with full ride scholarships that is enough compensation for players. Due to the lack of compensation, players have been choosing alternative routes instead of going to college to gain compensation or receive illegal compensation for their names, images, and likenesses at their respected colleges/university. The NCAA is worth over 3 billion dollars. For the NCAA to refuse compensation for their athletes is wrong and should be deemed unacceptable. The purpose of this synthesis project is to review the literature on the effects of compensation for NCAA athletes.
