The NCAA is awarding a one-time cash supplement of $200 million to its Division I schools.
The money will be divided up to each school based upon how many athletic scholarships the school gave out during the 2013-14 school year. Schools are set to receive anywhere from $165,000 to $1.3 million based on the measure. Davidson College received the smallest check from the NCAA while Ohio State received the largest, collecting over $1.3 million for handing out the equivalent of 404 scholarships that year. This information comes via data compiled by USA Today.
SEC schools received a little more than $11.5 million from the NCAA for handing out roughly 3,495 scholarships. Of the nine schools to receive more than $1 million from the NCAA, six of them come from the Big Ten and none come from the SEC.
The use of the funds will be restricted to uses that benefit athlete academic and welfare initiatives, per a Q&A document on the NCAA’s website.
Here is a full list of how much each SEC school will get and how many scholarships were roughly given out by each school.
