Statistics report varsity level programs only and do not reflect club or intramural 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  I school can award 14 women skiers  each a 1/2  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 7 per team.  See our page on scholarship limits for more information. Most NCAA programs are Alpine skiing teams, but several teams compete in Nordic skiing as well.  The United States Collegiate Ski & Snowboard Association (USCSA) has over 170 member organizations, most of which are club level teams but membership includes some varsity level programs as well.

* 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.
