Beach volleyball is recognized by NCAA Division I and II schools as an 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 I School could award 12 players each a 1/2 scholarship and not exceed the limit of 6 scholarships per team. NCAA I schools that do not sponsor indoor Women’s Volleyball are allowed an annual limit of 8 equivalency scholarships for Beach Volleyball. See our page on scholarship limits for more information. 

*  Average athletic scholarship is the average annual 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.
