This cross-sectional study aimed to clarify incongruent findings within the literature regarding the effects of athletic scholarships on motivation. Discriminant analysis suggested that sport scholarship and non-scholarship students were effectively discriminated based on their motives for engagement. Specifically, those student athletes with scholarships had less self-determined profiles compared to their non-scholarship counterparts. Practitioners therefore need to consider carefully the potentially motivation debilitating effects of low levels of self-determination when administering athletic scholarships. Kingston designed the study, analysed the data, and wrote and edited the manuscript.
