Despite being the heart and soul of a strong Xavier squad, Stainbrook is not on a college scholarship. It doesn’t mean he was never offered one, because he was given a full ride through his first four seasons (Stainbrook is a fifth-year senior), but rather he simply gave it to someone who deserved it more, his brother, Tim.
Fearing that he wouldn’t be able to afford an education at Xavier, Matt opted to defer his scholarship to brother Tim, with the hopes of him not having to worry about student loans.
Tim, who has paying upwards of $43,000 a year for undergrad classes, was in need of financial help. Brother Matt, hadn’t seen a student loan in his lifetime at the school. Since Matt was paying a much more manageable $14,000 for his MBA, the decision to give brother Tim his much more lucrative scholarship was a no-brainer.
Being a fifth-year senior has its perks. Matt doesn’t have a lot of classes scheduled, and has plenty of down time. So, what does Stainbrook do to pass the time? Give back to his Cincinnati community. Stainbrook doubles as an Uber-driver for the people of the city.
