US Sports Scholarships Expertise

To gain a US sports scholarship there are several processes that need to be completed. Many students prefer to go through a consultant to guide them through the US college recruiting process to ensure they maximize the opportunities. The process can be daunting and without expertise, applying can be a long and complicated experience. Hundreds of thousands of athletes, academics, artists, and musicians apply every year for US college scholarships and the vast majority fail every year. In many cases it is because they don’t have the credibility or the portfolio that is required by college selectors.

Our knowledge of the US college system is a major asset of the company. The links we have throughout the US with ex/current coaches and athletes, ensures we have an excellent understanding of the levels required in the US college system’
