* Statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level  and do not reflect school club and intramural sports teams.

**  Skiing  is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded in any proportion to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 14 women skiers  each a 1/2  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 14 per school.  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 I Skiing teams

The following are the results of our 2016 survey of NCAA I schools that sponsored varsity Skiing teams during their 2015-16 fiscal years. The results reflect the average number of athletic scholarships and the average award per team, as well as the low and high range for the number and average dollar amount of scholarships awarded per team:
2016 NCAA baseball
Men's NCAA I Skiing Teams Average Low  High
# of Scholarships Awarded 11 10 11
Average Scholarship per team  $      20,275  $          15,478  $        24,636
Women's NCAA I Skiing Teams Average Low  High
# of Scholarships Awarded 12 11 14
Average Scholarship per team  $     19,084  $       15,337  $        23,855

Number of scholarships awarded is per team, so for 4 year schools typically only 25% or so will be available for the incoming (i.e. freshmen) class. Data includes responding schools only, programs that do not award athletic scholarships (Ivy League, etc.) are not included in these results.

(1) Varsity Rosters  do not reflect club or intramural team participants.

(2) 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.

(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).
