Only about about 2 percent of high school football players receive college scholarships "well about 20% of high school football players get college football scholarships." "martin alberts College Florida" is incorrect.

There is no "difference" in terms of value. The only difference is the number of scholarships available. Division 1-A schools an have 85 players on scholarship, division 1-AA can have 63, and Division 2 can have 36 players on scholarship.

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).

Less than 2 percent of Division 1 college football players go pro. There are about 118 Division 1-A schools in the US.

Division II allows 36 scholarship equivalencies. That means those 36 scholarships may be divided among the players (Division I-FBS programs are allowed to give a scholarship of any kind to 85 players, so in effect, all 85 get full scholarships; Division I-FCS are allowed 63 equivalencies that can be divided among no more than 85 total players; Division III does not allow scholarships).

120 teams x 85 possible scholarships per team = 10200

On a Division 1 college baseball team there are 11.7 scholarships. Who many players scholarships or not can be on that team?

Division II allows 36 scholarship equivalencies. That means those 36 scholarships may be divided among the players (Division I-FBS programs are allowed to give a scholarship of any kind to 85 players, so in effect, all 85 get full scholarships; Division I-FCS are allowed 63 equivalencies that can be divided among no more than 85 total players; Division III does not allow scholarships).

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).
