Full scholarships cover tuition and fees, room, board and course-related books. Most student-athletes who receive athletics scholarships receive an amount covering a portion of these costs. … In most cases, coaches decide who receives a scholarship, the scholarship amount and whether it will be renewed (NCAA.org.)
Football is the number one scholarship sport at the college level with more full-ride scholarships than any other sport. There are 248 NCAA D1 FBS & FCS schools; 170 NCAA D2 schools, 244 NCAA D3 schools, 85 NAIA schools, 68 NJCAA schools and 69 CCCAA Schools.
Walk-ons do not get athletic scholarships. Despite not receiving any athletic money college walk-ons play a vital role in a college program. D1 FBS teams can give full-ride scholarships to 85 athletes on their roster. However, most FBS D1 teams will have 118-130 student-athletes on their roster, and those additional spots on the team are filled by walk-ons.
In order to receive a football scholarship, athletes must meet both athletic and academic criteria. The athletic criteria can change from program to program as every coach has different methods for determining which athletes are right for his program. From an academic stand point, a high school athlete looking to land a Division I football scholarship will need a minimum 2.3 GPA to meet minimum eligibility requirements. Keeping a strong GPA can also help you to land a combined athletic/academic scholarship package.
