Ask Coach Taylor – Do DIII Schools Offer Athletic Scholarships?
Coach Taylor – Do DIII schools offer athletic scholarships?
The simple answer is “No.” However, they do offer financial aid that is often very competitive when compared to other athletic based packages at higher levels.
DIII schools choose not to offer any athletic scholarships, but they are able to offer academic, merit, and need-based aid that can match or beat the offers of other schools. That is not at all uncommon for Division III schools.
Student-athletes with good grades are encouraged to stay open to the idea of Division III schools because you might be able to receive more money academically than a higher level school athletically.
Each school might have a different policy, but if they want you bad enough, they will do everything they can to make school affordable for your situation.
