The Truth About NAIA Programs

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, or NAIA rules regarding athletic scholarships are designed to level the playing field among its divisions. That is not to say that attending an NAIA school and playing sports is a lesser experience.  Indeed many NAIA programs are highly competitive with NCAA teams and are academically excellent. These schools have simply chosen to compete in a less-restrictive and generally less-expensive environment. The NAIA offers many opportunities for student athletes who are looking to receive scholarships and about 90 percent of NAIA schools offer athletic scholarships. Also, if an athlete is not comfortable at one institution, they can transfer to another without being penalized athletically.
