Hockey is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded (up to 30 per team in NCAA Division I) and meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 27 players each a 2/3  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 18 per school.  Hockey teams at most NCAA II member schools compete at the NCAA I level. Several schools with varsity level hockey programs compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) which is composed almost entirely of club programs and are not included in this data.

* 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.
