The College Football Playoff will help pay for travel expenses and food for traveling parents and guardians.
The CFP announced on Monday that it will continue to aid players’ parents or guardians for the semifinal and national championship games. According to a release, there will be a $2,500 stipend per student-athlete. It will go toward travel, hotel accommodations and meals for up to 125 families of players.
“We are delighted to continue this program for the participants of the College Football Playoff,” Bill Hancock, executive director of the CFP, said in the release. “It is a terrific benefit for our student-athletes and one the university presidents and conference commissioners who manage the playoff are proud to support.”
According to its website, the CFP gave $1.5 million to the four teams a year ago. Michigan State made the CFP, losing to Alabama in a semifinal.
