What We Do

Student-athlete success on the field, in the classroom and in life is at the heart of our mission. To support that charge, we and our member schools award more than $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships each year while also providing access to medical care, academic support services and first-class training opportunities.

The result is that NCAA student-athletes are graduating at a higher rate than other college students. More than eight out of 10 student-athletes will earn a bachelor’s degree. 

Student-athletes work hard throughout the year to be among those who qualify to compete for 89 NCAA championships. That experience teaches them time management, leadership skills and the importance of working toward a common goal. They are the tools for success that last a lifetime.
