How Many Students Get Athletic College Scholarships?


Thats the answer.   2% of college students get an athletic scholarship.    I got that answer off the NCAA site.  

By comparison when I looked at merit scholarships last year in my article How Many College Students Get Scholarships?   I found that 8.3% of students got private scholarships and 8.8% got institutional scholarships.    I assume there is some overlap though  and there is nothing I know that keeps a student from getting private scholarships and athletic scholarships.

All and all though, I'd say its about 4 times as likely that an individual will get a merit based academic scholarship than an athletic scholarship.   However I'd assume athletic scholarships have a higher average value.
