 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  teams split the 3.6 maximum available.    See our page on scholarship limits for more information. Rifle is a separate and distinct event from shotgun / shooting sports.

* 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.

% Receiving School FA reported in the tables below is the percentage of ALL undergrads (athletes & non-athletes)  who received financial assistance directly from the school (i.e. scholarships & grants). Avr School FA Award is the average amount of the award received by those students who received financial assistance directly from the school.  

SAT & ACT percentiles: The tables below report the mid-range for SAT Math and ACT composite scores of the school’s entering students: 50% of incoming students scored within the range reported, 25% scored at or below the low end of the range (25th percentile) and 25% scored at or above the high end of the range (75th percentile)
