Additional Information

Montana State University-Bozeman sponsors eight (8) NCAA women's sports and six (6) NCAA men's sports in addition to men's and women's rodeo. As this report shows, MSU is committed to equity in intercollegiate athletics. Over the past five years, the percentage of women participating in intercollegiate athletics at MSU has increased from 30% to nearly 44%, now in exact proportion with the full-time undergraduate female population of 44%.

Women's golf, volleyball, basketball, track and cross country are allocated funds for the maximum number of scholarships. Women's tennis and skiing will be fully funded within the next two years.

Depending on whether a sport is a team or individual sport, travel budgets vary, but like sports for men and women have similar travel budgets.

Over the past two years, recruiting budgets have become more equitable for men and women, and the program will continue in that direction.

With continued increase in participation for women and a decrease in the number of walk-ons in men's sports, the scholarship numbers have and will continue to show significant incrases during this next academic year for women's sports. More of MSU's female athletes graduate in four years, and therefore scholarship aid for fifth (5th) year students is at a higher proportion for male athletes. All students have the same opportunity to receive a fifth year of scholarship aid if minimum requirements are achieved.
