Rugby is an NCAA Division I and II emerging sport for women and is an equivalency sport which means athletic scholarships can be split into partial awards in any proportion up to the maximum allowed. Rugby is not an NCAA sport for men and varsity level men’s teams compete primarily against club programs and generally do not award athletic based scholarships.
