Common Data Set says Wes DOES give non-need based aid (merit)

I noticed this on this data analysis of the common data set 2013/2014 - it shows Wesleyan gave an average of $47,244 to incoming freshman in NON-need based aid (excludes athletics). This only went to 1% of their students - but still. Their site says "No aid is based on academic merit, athletic ability or special talents" :

What gives?
