Division I-FBS (formerly Division 1-A) football programs are allowed to have 85 players on scholarship. The NCAA does not mandate that all 85 scholarships are "full" scholarships, although in practice it makes little sense to give a "half" or "fractional" scholarship since the rules govern number of players receiving a scholarship rather than the number of full scholarships.

In Division I-FCS (formerly Division 1-AA), programs are allowed 63 "equivalencies," meaning that they can give more than 63 players a scholarship as long as those scholarships do not total more than the equivalent of 63 full scholarships. Division II programs are allowed 36 "equivalencies," and Division III are allowed zero (Division III sports are non-scholarship).

It depends on the team and school because schools with bigger and better football programs will have more because they want to keep the legacy going. The average amount is about 8-12.

### How many college athletes receive scholarships?

As far as I know, nearly every college baseball program will offer scholarships. The value of the scholarship will more or less depend on the talent of the athlete. NCAA and NAIA schools offer scholarships, but it is rare for a player to get a 100% full ride on just baseball. Baseball programs do not have the budgets that football has, thus cannot give out tons of free money. If you are looking for actual specific numbers on how many schools give scholarships, I can't help you.
