Women's NCAA I Volleyball is a headcount sport so there is a limit of 12 players per school that can be under scholarship annually. All other NCAA Volleyball programs are equivalency sports for scholarship purposes, so partial awards can be awarded to meet the annual limit. For example, an NCAA Division II school can award 16 female players each a 1/2 scholarship and still meet the limit of 8 per team. See our page on scholarship limits for more information.
* 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.
