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

** Rugby is an NCAA Division I and II emerging sport for women and  is an equivalency sport which means athletic scholarships can be split into partial awards in any proportion up to the maximum allowed. For example an NCAA Division I school can award 24 female players each a 1/2 athletic scholarship and still comply with the team limit of 12.  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.
