 (1) Varsity Rosters  do not reflect club or intramural team participants.

** Equestrian is an emerging women's sport for NCAA Division I and Division II schools women and an equivalency sport for  scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 20 participants each a 3/4 scholarship and still meet the  limit of 15 per school.  The National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) is the governing body for schools competing in NCAA sanctioned equestrian.  Many NCAA member schools compete within the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) rather than the NCAA and are not subject to the NCAA scholarship limits.

(2) Average Athletic Scholarship is the average award per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific school. Some athletes receive full awards, some receive partial and many receive none. Additionally some sports within a school may be fully funded, some partially and some sports provide no athletic scholarships. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this.

New Data!  2016 Athletic Scholarship Averages for NCAA I Equestrian teams

The following are the results of our 2016 survey of NCAA I schools that sponsored varsity equestrian teams during their 2015-16 fiscal years. The results reflect the average number of athletic scholarships and average award by responding  schools, as well as the low and high range for the number and average award per team:
2016 NCAA baseball
 NCAA I Equestrian Teams Average Low  High
Scholarships awarded per team 41 36 47
Average Scholarship per team  $     10,462  $         5,677  $       17,196
Number of scholarships awarded is per team, so for 4 year schools typically only 25% or so will be available for the incoming (i.e. freshmen) class. NCAA I schools that do not award athletic scholarships  are not included in these results.
