 Rifle is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded in any proportion  to meet the limit per school.  NCAA rifle teams are a combination of coed, men's and women's teams, however the scholarship limits apply to the member school so separate men's and women's  split the 3.6 maximum available.    See our page on scholarship limits for more information.

Average athletic scholarship is the average award per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the 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.
Athletic Scholarship Averages for NCAA I Rifle Teams:
