Did you know:

  • Athletic scholarships cover a wide but selected range of sports and offer talented students financial incentives for representing their university at the varsity level.
  • You must meet the academic requirements of an athletic association to be eligible.
  • University level sports are governed by athletic associations, who set the rules regarding scholarships and athletic recruitment. If a university isn’t a member of an athletic association, it is very unlikely that they have sports scholarships available. Each athletic association will have its own eligibility criteria for international students.
  • You will have to register with the correct athletic association as well as applying to the university as a regular student. If you meet the association’s eligibility requirements and are a top athlete, sometimes the university will waive some of their requirements.
  • US athletic recruitment at the university level is highly competitive. The sooner you start the process and the more time you put in, the more likely you are to achieve your goal. You can follow a do-it-yourself route, contacting individual university coaches to inform them of your interest in their sport and to demonstrate your talent.
