 How does the scholarship process for Division I lacrosse break down?

With Division I programs allotted 12.6 scholarships for their entire team, college coaches rarely give out full scholarships, instead opting to parse out those scholarships in varying increments.

The college coaches ESPN RISE spoke with said the biggest misconception in lacrosse recruiting is the thinking that those 12.6 scholarships are available each year. Programs are alloted that number to use for their entire roster, which has typically 45 to 50 players. So if a player graduates who was given $200, for example, the program can now use that $200 on another player.

According to there are 66 mens D1 programs that can give a maximum of 12.6 scholarships (many schools do not have all 12.6 scholarships to give).  On the womens side there are 103 D1 programs that can give the max of 12 scholarships.  D2 has 57 mens programs (10.8 scholarships), and the women have 85 programs (9.9 scholarships).  D3 does not award athletic scholarships.  Only 2.8% of all male high school players will play D1 lacrosse. The number goes up to 3.4% on the female side.
