Equestrian is an emerging women’s sport for NCAA I and  II schools  and an equivalency sport for  scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA  I school can award 30 participants each a 1/2 scholarship and still meet the  limit of 15 per team.  The National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) is the governing body for schools competing in NCAA sanctioned equestrian.  Many NCAA member schools compete within the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA)  and are not subject to the NCAA scholarship limits. There are no men’s varsity teams, however some equestrian teams are coed.

* Average Athletic Scholarship is the average annual amount of athletically related student aid 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.
