Sports Scholarships, Athletic Scholarships and Financial Aid for Student Athletes
Approximately 1% to 2% of undergraduate students in Bachelor's degree programs receive athletic scholarships, a total of about $1 billion a year. Of schools with a NCAA affiliation, only Division I and Division II schools may offer athletic scholarships. Division III schools -- the most prestigious institutions -- are precluded from offering athletic scholarships. Schools with other affiliations, such as NAIA, offer athletic scholarships according to the policies of the associations to which they belong. The types of scholarships that may be offered include archery scholarships, baseball scholarships, basketball scholarships, crew scholarships, cross country scholarships, fencing scholarships, field hockey scholarships, football scholarships, golf scholarships, gymnastics scholarships, hockey scholarships, lacrosse scholarships, rifle scholarships, sailing scholarships, skiing scholarships, soccer scholarships, softball scholarships, swimming scholarships, tennis scholarships, track scholarships, volleyball scholarships, and wrestling scholarships.
