The advantages of competing in college sports are both immediate and lifelong. Participating in college sports provides opportunities to learn, compete and succeed.
More than $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships is distributed each year along with access to medical care, academic support services and first-class training opportunities.
Student-athlete success on the field, in the classroom and for life is at the heart of our mission.
The NCAA Woman of the Year program honors the academic achievements, athletics excellence, community service and leadership of graduating female college athletes from all three divisions.
We are a member-led, higher education association that appreciates the impact a college degree can have in transforming a life. NCAA employees come to work every day believing in their ability to make a difference.
Join our team and help us carry our mission into the future.
“A priority for us was to fund the cost of attendance stipends across the board in all 31 of our programs. But that’s $1.75 million that we don’t have to do something else with, but it’s about priorities. That was very much a priority for us because it’s about students and students having access to resources and educational opportunities.”
– Sandy Barbour, athletics director at Pennsylvania State University.
