Since the advent of Title IX in 1972, there has been an increase in the number of athletic programs and scholarships for women and girls. Many colleges and universities are increasing the number of athletic programs and scholarships for women but have yet to reach the aptitude needed to create fair and equal opportunities for women in sports. Women and girls continue to face inequality in sports and do not have the same access to facilities, equipment and necessary funding as men. Although athletic scholarships can be hard to find and also very competitive, there are many scholarships, awards and opportunities for women and girls.
