Hockey is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can
  be awarded (up to 30 per team in NCAA Division I) and meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 27 players each a 2/3  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 18 per school.
  Hockey teams at most NCAA II member schools compete at the NCAA I level.  Hockey is not an official NAIA sport,  NAIA member institutions with varsity hockey programs compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) which includes both varsity and club programs.

 *
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.  ** For NCAA III schools competing at the NCAA I level the average scholarship amount reported in the table below is the average for Hockey only.

 

Athletic Scholarship Averages for NCAA I Hockey teams2016 NCAA Golf
Men's NCAA I Hockey Teams Average Low  High
Scholarships awarded per team 22 16 25
Average Scholarship per team  $     31,756  $       19,934  $        35,986
Women's NCAA I Hockey Teams Average Low  High
Scholarships awarded per team 20 20 20
Average Scholarship per team  $    41,693  $        41,208  $       42,179

These are the results of our survey of NCAA I schools that sponsored varsity hockey teams during their 2016 fiscal years. 
Number of scholarships awarded is per team, so for 4 year schools typically only 1/4 or so will be available for the incoming  athletes. Data includes responding schools only, programs that do not award athletic scholarships are not included in results.

By a wide margin Minnesota was the home state listed by the most players competing on men's and women's NCAA I hockey teams during the 2016-17 season - fair to say the US hotbed for producing college players. Louisiana & DC  topped our list of NCAA I basketball hotbeds, but are clearly not big producers of college hockey players.
