Usually nothing, it all depends on the school you go to. Some bigger universities such as Kentucky and Texas give their cheerleaders full rides for Cheerleading. Smaller schools only give partial scholarships, and some don't even have that luxury. The schools dont actually "pay" you personally. They do it in form of a scholarship.

Most cheerleading squads, you don't get paid. Some you even need to pay to get in.

If a cheerleader is for a college team, they will not make any money at all. Professional cheerleaders only make about $800 per month.
