Over 25 percent, or approximately $7 million, of the annual Division III nonchampionships budget is devoted to supporting member schools and conferences through various educational programs and financial initiatives.
Member schools and conference offices are encouraged to apply for a multitude of programs, grants and scholarships that aim to enhance the Division III philosophy. These programs and initiatives provide opportunities for Division III members to:
- Educate student-athletes, coaches and administrators;
- Expose student-athletes to careers in intercollegiate athletics;
- Participate in professional development opportunities; and
- Increase diversity and inclusion via the Division III diversity grants.
