    I am assuming the top players are getting a scholarship, but are the other players getting at least something unless they are a walk on? how about for the Women's teams at the top schools?

    Not 100% sure, but I think most (or all) D1 players male and female are on a full or partial scholarship.

    Virtually every NCAA DI player, male or female, is reviving some form of athletic scholarship. US law requires equal athletic scholarship opportunities for men and women, so if men get scholarships, so do the women.

    Some schools don't offer any scholarships. R.I.T. comes to mind. It was a pretty big deal they made the Frozen Four in '10 being a school not offering any athletic scholarships.

    I'm pretty sure their are players in the elite programs playing without scholly aid.

    The majority of D1 hockey schools have 18 full rides to divide out to 25 players. They have 18 tuitions, 18 housings, and 18 books scholarships and each player usually gets something. All the ivy league schools cannot offer athletic scholarships. Air force and Army are allowed to give a full ride to every player on the team however that comes with the implication of serving time in the armed forces.

    This is correct. While D3 players receive no such scholarships.

    The majority of men's NCAA D1 colleges have 18 scholarships to divide amongst their hockey roster, while some have full rides many others have partial rides as the total can be split amongst players. The Atlantic Hockey conference a few years back expanded their scholarship awards from 12 to14, at the end of last season voted and passed the expansion to 18 scholarships to conform with the older established conferences.

    You will find a small percentage of players who have no athletic scholarship award, depends how deep the bench is and how valuable the player is valued. With 18 scholarships on so many ways to cut it, and with some benches numbering up to 30 bodies you can do the math.

    Now for the caveats as some have mentioned.......

    Army and Air Force (Atlantic Hockey conference) do not offer any scholarships, they are all gratis in exchange of serving in the military after graduation. In essence the entire team is free to play.

    RIT in Atlantic Hockey also does not offer scholarships it is all financial aid based, due to coming into the Atlantic Hockey conference late and missing the cutoff date for new team entries.

    Lastly IVY league colleges do not offer scholarships, it is all financial aid based meaning if you are less well off you receive more funding and more well off less funding.

    Lastly women's teams play by the same rules.

    Aren't there a few Division II schools (in other sports) that play Division III? I know with all the other sports Division II is permitted to give scholarships, but Division III cannot. Do the Division II schools get to offer scholarships and the Division III cannot or does their other classification not matter and it is on a sport by sport basis?

    The IVY's do offer Academic Scholarships - right? So, an athlete could receive one of those, but that's based solely on their academic ability and not tied to their athletic ability or ability to 'make' the team.

    The Ivy League schools are all need blind. If you can get in, you can go there and your financial need will be met proportionally to your family's ability to pay.

    Via the Ivy League website:

    FINANCIAL AID CRITERIA
    Ivy League schools provide financial aid to students, including athletes, only on the basis of financial need as determined by each institution’s Financial Aid Office. There are no academic or athletic scholarships in the Ivy League. A coach may assist a prospective student-athlete to obtain an estimated financial aid award, however only the Financial Aid Office has the authority to determine financial aid awards and to notify students officially of their actual or estimated awards.

    At one point in the recent past a number of DII schools in the East effectively played down as DIII schools. I seem to remember that they had to agree to play by the DIII rules (i.e. no athletic scholarships) to be admitted to some DIII conferences. This was a contentious point for the DIII schools because their conference games against the DII schools did not count for purposes of their record and NCAA DIII tournament eligibility. At this time the NCAA would not let DII schools play down as DIII in a single sport, which is unfortunate because they were not offering athletic scholarships at this time anyways and held no comparative athletic advantage over the DIII schools they were playing.

    Prior to that the NCAA did recognize proper DII hockey with actual athletic scholarships. The creation of the Atlantic Hockey Conference for better or worse killed proper DII hockey as most schools playing as proper DII moved up to DI. I have no idea what the DII schools (the DII schools that don't play up as DI) are doing these days in terms of scholarships, conferences and what not. The best DIII schools will offer very attractive financial aid packages to their best recruits. While not technically athletic scholarships, they do go out of their way to make themselves attractive to the recruits they want.
