Was thinking the exact same thing. 1995 for me. I googled it, and found out Shimon Peres spoke. I would have never come up with this on my own. Was I disappointed? Hell no. I was getting my degree!

Medical Scholarship does not exist. It is a common term used for medical hardship. Medical hardship also address injuries if occurred in senior year of high school, assuming some qualifiers are met.

If a player is not cleared medically, he cannot play until he's cleared. This is not the same as "at all".

If you have a link to compliance documents that I don't, please share.

There is no bylaw specifically addressing the issue of medical scholarships. 

That's because a medical scholarship does not exist in the eyes of the NCAA. Bylaw 14.2.4 address hardship waivers, which per 11W's article yesterday is the option the student athlete was presented with.

"As a result, Dean has decided to move on and pursue opportunities — both academically and athletically — elsewhere. Sources informed Eleven Warriors that Dean was presented an opportunity for a medical hardship so he could remain on academic scholarship at Ohio State, but he opted for a release from his scholarship in an attempt to get cleared medically elsewhere."

Medical hardship does not end one's playing eligibility.
