Those of you teaching classes in sports or education might find this graph useful (click to enlarge). It shows which sports receive the most money in sports scholarships (Division I and II men’s and women’s teams) and what percentage of a full scholarship, on average, students in each sport are awarded. The take home message of the accompanying New York Times article is that while students and parents work tremendously hard to get sports scholarships, they rarely pay off in the long run, even when they get them. In the meantime, students are overworked on the field and suffering academically.
