See how any college is doing, providing women with fair opportunities to play sports, athletic scholarships, and investments in recruiting and overall support. The data are self-reported by each college and are from the Equity in Athletics Data Analysis (EADA) website. 

Opportunities to play college sports

Colleges are supposed to offer women opportunities to play sports (spots on teams) proportional to their percentage of all undergrads. For example, if 50% of undergrads are women, 50% of spots on teams should be for women athletes.

Athletic scholarships (Aid)

Colleges are supposed to provide proportional athletic scholarships (aid) to men and women. For example, if 50% of a college’s athletes are women, 50% of athletic aid should go to women athletes. If the gray bar is at least as high as the orange dot, women athletes received a fair share of aid. You can toggle aid for men (blue dot) on or off.

Note: If more colleges offered a fair share of spots on teams to women, there would be more athletic aid available. The fewer team spots a college offers, the easier it is to meet the fair share of aid threshold. This is one reason that athletic aid appears to favor women in some cases.

Overall team expenses

Colleges are supposed to provide similar quality benefits and services to men and women athletes across many areas including scheduling, travel, coaching, facilities, dining, publicity, recruitment, and more.

It is fine for schools to spend more on some teams and less on others, and there are no requirements for how much is spent on men’s or women’s teams. However, almost twice as much was spent on men’s teams as on women’s teams in 2021 - 2022. This suggests that, in many cases, men’s teams received higher quality benefits and services.

Recruiting

Recruiting is essential for a team to be successful. In 2021 - 2022, only 29% of recruiting dollars were spent on women athletes.

Coaches salaries

When coaches of men’s teams earn more than the coaches of women’s teams, that provides an incentive for the best coaches to coach men’s teams, where they will be better compensated.

Among the top 50 salaries reported by USA Today, coaches of women’s college basketball teams make only $27 cents for every $1 a coach of a men’s team makes.
