Is he paying anything toward his education? Typically, I would say that spending money is the student's responsibility (at the very minimum). Surely he can scrape up eight or ten hours a week to work on campus, or he can work in the summer and save money for incidentals during the year. Campus jobs can be really beneficial toward your education if you work as a lab assistant, teaching assistant or help a professor out with research. If you want to give him money have him draw up a budget to document and justify the amount.
