: : : : Concordia is D2....they offer need-based scholarships....

: : : : Division II partial-scholarship model
: : : : Division II relies on a partial-scholarship model to administer athletics-based financial aid. Very few of the 110,000 student-athletes competing in Division II will receive a full athletics grant that covers all of their expenses, but most of them will receive some athletics-based financial aid to help them through school. For the rest of their expenses, student-athletes use academic scholarships, student loans and employment earnings just like most other students attending the school.

: : : : The partial-scholarship model allows Division II schools to recognize student-athletes for their skills through athletics-based aid, while at the same time keeping athletics budgets more in line with the institution’s bottom line. It costs Division II schools about half as much to sponsor a competitive athletics program as it does in Division I. The net operating costs in Division II even tend to be lower than for programs of similar size in Division III (primarily because of higher net operating revenues in Division II).

: : : : The partial-scholarship model is sometimes referred to as an “equivalency” system. That’s because schools in Division II are allowed to award athletics-based financial aid that is “equivalent” to a certain number of full grants in each sport.

: : : : For example, in football, schools are allowed to award up to 36 “equivalencies” or full grants, but of course the rosters in football are much larger than 36 players. Thus, coaches and financial aid officers at Division II institutions decide how to allocate those equivalencies as partial scholarships. That means some student-athletes may receive more athletics-based aid than others, and some will not receive any at all. As a comparison, schools in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision are allotted 85 “full rides.”

: : : : Sounds like somebody is trying to blow their own horn here...smh

: : : : Amazing all the snakes that will use kids to try and get their name out there.

: : : He is going there on a FULL RIDE so it doesn't matter what you think. I am a proud relative of his and you need to go to church

: : I might be out of the loop, but Concordia is NAIA as far as I know, and NAIA schools can give athletic scholarships, no?

: Of course, the original sceptic has no idea what he's talking about. Of course D2 schools can offer full rides. But often, they don't need to since the 10 scholarships can be sliced and combined with need based aid. Because of this flexibility, many D2 schools effectively have more scholarships than D1 schools. At the D1 level, basketball is a head count sport. Scholarships can't be divided and combined with need based aid.

Well look at that, I had no idea. As has been mentioned, D2 schools CAN give scholarships.
