They are a scholarship football program. I don't know of anyone who gets a full ride football scholarship to an NAIA school. What you end up with is a "Scholarship Package" which is some combination of athletic scholarship, academic scholarship, grant money, KEES money, loans, and need based money determined by your FAFSA. Add it all up, and then you pay the difference. I would guess Freshman football money somewhere between $3500-$6000 depending on how much they want you. If you play and they want to keep you they will tipically up it a little each year. Pretty much all NAIA and Division II football is that way. Division I-A & Division I-AA are the only ones that give full rides, and they also combine all other money into the calculation for the cost to their program.
Bottom line is, with the exception of the a few gifted athletes, academics will get you the most money in most cases. I can't emphasize enough, work as hard or harder in the classroom as you do on the field or the court.
It's a rough synopsis, but I hope it helps.
