**  Ice Hockey is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded (up to 30 per team in NCAA Division I) to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 27 ice Hockey players each a 2/3  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 18 per school.  Additionally, these are the annual limits for the entire team;  so for a 4 year school  only about  25% of the limit per school  will  typically be  available for  incoming students.  See our page on scholarship limits for more information.

*** Athletically based student aid is the average per participating student 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 athletically based student aid. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this. These averages are strictly for athletically related student aid and do not include academically based and other financial assistance that all students - including athletes - may qualify for. NCAA & NJCAA Division III schools  do not award athletic scholarships, but provide other financial assistance that student athletes may qualify for.

* These statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level (including JV & freshman teams) and do not reflect school club or intramural teams. Athletic scholarships are not awarded for participation in either club or intramural sports.

** Athletically based student aid is the average per participating student 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 athletically based student aid. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this. These averages are strictly for athletically related student aid and do not include academically based and other financial assistance that all students - including athletes - may qualify for. NCAA & NJCAA Division III schools  do not award athletic scholarships, but provide other financial assistance that student athletes may qualify for.
