These statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level and do not reflect school club or intramural teams; athletic scholarships are not awarded for participation in either club or intramural sports. Collegiate athletic association divisions have differing rules for athletic scholarships, and not all schools award athletic scholarships to student athletes participating at the varsity level. See our page on scholarship limits for detailed information.

During 2013 US Colleges awarded over $ 3 billion in athletic scholarships, and by our calculations there are approximately 177,559 athletic scholarships available to the college student athlete.

In 2013 a total of 517,849 unique student athletes (i.e. multi-sport student athletes are counted only once)  competed at the collegiate varsity level on teams sponsored by 2,058 schools. Unique student athlete participation by Athletic Association is as follows:
