Do all universities offer athletic scholarships?

While all colleges and universities offer different kinds of scholarships, they don’t all have athletic scholarships.

Only NCAA Division 1 and 2, NAIA and NJCAA schools can offer scholarships to incoming athletes.

However, Ivy League schools and NCAA Division 3 schools do not have athletic scholarships.
These programs use financial aid from other parts of the university, but not from the athletic department.

While not all of the schools you’re interested in can offer you an athletic scholarship there are other types of scholarships you can earn if you qualify.

These include academic and merit-based scholarships. That’s why it’s important to get your GPA as high as you can and do well on the SAT and ACT.

Being a strong student and athlete will help you find more college opportunities and get financial aid. Make sure you work hard to be a well-rounded student athlete; college coaches are only interested in athletes who succeed in both the classroom and on the field.
