Name, Image and Likeness (NIL)

Name, Image and Likeness

What's the Deal?

The NAIA is leading the way in NIL legislation that allows student-athletes to benefit from the use of their own name, image and likeness.

For the first time in the history of college sports, student-athletes can benefit financially from the hard work they pour into their athletic career. NIL opportunities allow college athletes to earn money and engage in endorsement deals based on their Name, Image and Likeness without violating their amateur status. Simply put, student-athletes can now receive compensation for their brand!
