Best Answer

There are currently four NCAA divisions for college football.

Division I-FBS allows 85 total players to receive a scholarship. In practice, all 85 players receive a full scholarship that completely pays for the players' college education.

Division I-FCS allows 63 full scholarships, but these may be divided among any number of players (or 63 scholarship equivalencies).

Division II allows 36 full scholarship equivalencies.

Division III does not allow athletic scholarships.

The NAIA also sponsors football in a single division. The NAIA allows 24 scholarship equivalencies.

The are several other small organizing bodies, and scholarships vary widely between these organizations (although none exceed 24 equivalencies).
