**  Lacrosse  is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded (up to 30 per team in NCAA Division I) to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 24 women lacrosse players each a 1/2  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 12 per school.  All NAIA sports are equivalency sports for scholarship limits whereas all NJCAA sports are head-count  sports for  scholarship limits.*** NCAA & NJCAA Division III schools  do not award athletic scholarships, but provide other financial assistance that student athletes may qualify for.  These numbers are maximums  – schools can elect to fund athletic scholarships to the limit, award none,  or fund somewhere in between.  Additionally, these are annual limits for the entire team;  so for a 4 year school  only about  25% of the limit per school  will  typically be  available for  incoming students.
