Some parents think that opportunities are reserved for only elite athletes, and indeed, some opportunities are. More than seven million high school athletes of both genders are vying for only about $1.4 billion awarded in athletic scholarships. If this pot were awarded proportionately, each of the nation’s athletes would receive less than $200 to help pay for tuition. Only about 6.76 percent of high school athletes will play at a college level, and only 1.68 percent will receive a full or partial athletic scholarship to and NCAA-affiliated school. Only 0.98 percent will make the cut to play on a Division 1 college team.
