Volleyball Scholarships

Although some schools have both male and female volleyball teams, scholarships for female athletes are much more common due to the sheer number of women’s volleyball teams. In the NCAA’s Division I, for example, there are 247 sponsored female teams compared to 23 on the men’s side, and those men’s teams are found predominantly at large schools like The University of California-Los Angeles.

Traditional volleyball scholarships from big schools with the top programs are very competitive, and require minimum GPAs in their eligibility standards. Don’t rule out smaller schools with lesser-known programs where funding may be more available, especially if you’re targeting men’s teams. Volleyball players who want to play the sport on the club or intramural level still may be eligible for scholarships set up by local leagues and organizations who judge athletes less on talent and more on other factors such as academic achievement, work in the community or affiliations with their groups. Players then at all skill levels may find themselves eligible for awards not offered directly by the college they plan to attend.
