   (1) Statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level and do not reflect school club and intramural teams.

   **  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.

   (2)  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.

New Data!  2016 Athletic Scholarship Averages for NCAA Division I Rifle Teams

The following are the results of our 2016 survey of NCAA I schools that sponsored varsity rifle teams during their 2015-16 fiscal years. The results reflect the average number of athletic scholarships and the average award per responding team, as well as the low and high range for the number and average scholarship award per team.
  college rifle 2016
 NCAA I Rifle Teams Average Low  High
 Scholarships awarded per team 10 7 14
Average Scholarship per team  $     10,285  $       8,048  $       14,549
Number of scholarships awarded is per team, so for 4 year schools typically only 25% 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.

 (1)  Statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level only and do not reflect club or intramural teams.

 (2)  Average athletic scholarship is the average amount of athletically related student aid 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.

 (3)  SAT Math Average  For each school this represents the range where the middle half of the admitted students scored, so 1/4 scored below the lower end (25th percentile) and 1/4 scored above the upper end (75th percentile).
