Women's rowing is an equivalency sport so partial scholarships can be awarded in any proportion to meet the limit per school; for example, an NCAA Division I team can award 40 rowers each a 1/2 scholarship and still meet the NCAA school limit of 20. See our page on scholarship limits for more information. Even though it's the oldest intercollegiate sport in the US, men's rowing has never been an official NCAA sport.

*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.
