Why are scholarships important?
For most athletes going through the football recruiting process, snagging a football scholarship to a great school is the ultimate goal. Here’s some good news: there are approximately 896 football programs across the U.S., and the majority of them offer football scholarships to talented student-athletes. Scholarships are available for collegiate football players at the NCAA Division 1 FBS, Division 1 FCS and Division 2 levels, as well as at NAIA colleges and junior colleges.
Division 1 FBS teams can give out a maximum of 85 full-ride scholarships to athletes. Division 1 FCS programs can provide a maximum of 63 total scholarships. The 85 FBS scholarships are headcount scholarships, which means every athlete who receives a scholarship at the D1 FBS level gets a full-ride scholarship. The 63 FCS scholarships are equivalency scholarships. This means a coach can divide these scholarships up, giving more athletes partial scholarships.
The path to higher education is not always easy, and many students need help along the way. Scholarships open the door to a college education for talented students who might otherwise be left with thousands of dollars in debt, or not attend college at all. Every student’s story is different, but the financial gap in paying for college is still apparent. Promising students are willing to work hard and better their lives if the gap between the cost of a college education and what a family can afford can be narrowed or eliminated altogether.
