Yale and the rest of the Ivy League schools give no athletic scholarships. However, they do let at least certain coaches give athletic endorsements which do not give automatic admission. It was revealed in the recent nationwide admission scandal that the women's soccer coach (who left Yale before the scandal broke) probably gave two fraudulent endorsements, and one of the two students was admitted before having the admission rescinded after the scandal broke.

I do not know if they gave athletic scholarships in the past when any Bush attended.
