Product Description

Overview: Athletic scholarships, one of the most recognizable forms of merit-based financial aid is governed in the United States by the NCAA(National Collegiate Athletic Association), which establishes the rules governing the type, number, and amount of athletic scholarships awarded annually by its member-institutions. However, the NCAA does not award athletic scholarships, but rather it establishes the academic qualifications and other eligibility criteria for student-athletes attending NCAA member-institutions as outlined in the NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student Athlete. The NCAA oversees 89 championships in 23 sports where over 400,000 student-athletes compete, and is made up of three membership classifications known as:

  • Division I (346 colleges and universities), where students bypass the normal admissions process and work directly with the athletic department of the college
  • Division II(307 colleges and universities), where students typically receive a combination of merit-based (i.e., athletic scholarship) and need-based financial aid to make up their award package
  • Division III (439 colleges and universities), where no athletic scholarships are awarded and, students must qualify for admission through the normal admissions process. Students may receive a merit- and need-based financial aid package to cover all or a portion of the Cost of Attendance

Athletic scholarships are awarded to students directly by the colleges or universities in Division I or Division II
