List of Football Academic All-America Team Members of the Year is a list of the annual selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America and its Academic All-America sponsor of the individual athlete selected as the most outstanding of the annual Football Academic All-America selections. From 1996 to 2011 one winner each was chosen from both the College and University Divisions for all twelve Academic All-America teams including football. The Academic All-America program recognizes combined athletic and academic excellence of the nation's top student-athletes. The University Division team included eligible participants from National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I member schools, while the College Division team included scholar-athletes from all of the following: NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), Canadian universities and colleges and two-year schools. Currently, each team selects Academic All-District honorees in eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. First team All-District honorees make the All-America team ballots. All twelve Academic All-American teams (Men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's track & field, men's baseball, women's softball, men's football, women's volleyball and men's and women's at-large teams) had one Academic All-American of the Year each for both the College and University divisions. One of these twelve sport-by-sport Academic All-Americans of the year is selected as the Academic All-America Team Members of the Year for each division. The most recent football players to win the all-sports honor are Carson Wentz of North Dakota State University and Jason Vander Laan of Ferris State University, respectively winners of the Division I and Division II awards for the 2015–16 academic year (with the football awards designated as 2015 awards and the overall awards presented for 2016).
In 2011, the Academic All-America program was expanded from two to four divisions. NCAA Divisions II and III were separated into their own divisions, while the College Division now consists only of non-NCAA institutions.
