No, not all players on a team receive scholarships. Some teams may only have enough money for one or two players to receive scholarships and the rest of the team will have to work their way through school by playing for the school’s club sports team.
Some teams have a certain amount of scholarships that can be awarded to players. For example, the NCAA allows for up to 25 full-scholarship athletes for Division I schools in the United States. .A team with more scholarships than the maximum number of players allowed by the NCAA can do one of two things:
Surrender a scholarship by reducing the number of scholarships to below the maximum allowed. If a player leaves, they will not replace them with another scholarship athlete.Add more players to the team. The team is then allowed up to 25 athletes (including the full-scholarship athletes).
(1) give up a scholarship and fill that spot with walk-ons, or (2) cut down on their roster of players. In order to fill a scholarship spot, some schools will offer partially paid internships.
