NCAA I women's tennis is a headcount sport, so there is a limit of 8 players that can be under scholarship annually. All other NCAA tennis programs are equivalency sports for scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can be awarded to meet the limit per team. For example, an NCAA I Men's team can award 9 players each a 1/2 equivalent scholarship and still meet the 4.5 limit. See our page on scholarship limits for more information.

* Average Athletic Scholarship is the average 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.
