There are over 1,000 college track and field programs across American colleges and universities. Each division level has a different number of track scholarships they can give out each year. The vast majority of track scholarships are given as partial scholarships.
Unlike other college sports, coaches aren’t watching hours of film and evaluating athletes at camps to know if they are going to be good enough for their team. Track & Field is simple in the fact that either you can get the time, or you can’t. That being said, each program has different needs and philosophies when it comes to awarding scholarship money. Unlike other college sports, most track coaches will be very upfront about what time or mark you need to make their team and to get a scholarship.
