    Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., I believe, is a 1-AA, non-scholarship program. So there are no scholarships for football, you could however, receive academic money.

    Sorry to confuse anyone. I was referring to Georgetown College in Kentucky.

    Georgetown College is an NAIA school in the Mid-South Conference. G-Town is one of the best NAIA programs in the country and are always a legit threat to challenge for a national title. So you better be a darn good football player to go there.

    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.

    GC recruits from everywhere. They primarily recruit from the state of Kentucky (when you look at the roster) but they do recruit from outside the state as well. Like the poster said, they are always at the top of their game. They get a lot of good athletes because of the great academics at G-town as well as it is the training camp of a pro team, so if you perform you can get looks from the pros (not a lot of naia teams can offer that).

    Good academics, good location (13 miles from Lex), good athletics. Would recommend G-town to anyone.
