Fantastic Track & Field College Scholarships

A scholarship is money awarded to students attending universities in the United States with the purpose of reducing the cost of the education and living costs. A scholarship varies from 1-100% of the school’s total costs and may cover tuition fees, apartment, food and text books. A 100% scholarship will cover all of these costs for a student.

There are different types of scholarships: sports scholarship (for track & field athletes these are called track & field scholarships), academic scholarships and international scholarships. It is the coach of the school team that determines how much sports scholarship he/she can give a student. It is possible to get a combination of the different scholarships.

The biggest track & field scholarships are worth as much as $60,000 a year. Remember, a bachelor’s degree in the United States takes four years to complete, multiplying a $60,000 scholarship with four and you can get an education worth $240,000 covered through your athletic level. Quite simply amazing!

What our student-athletes say

Simen Olafsen

Florida International University
I needed to get away from “safe” Norway and learn to live alone. This, and the opportunity to get a great education, alongside with playing soccer at a good level, was very tempting.

Aedan Radvanyi

Point University, Georgia
As a footballer, being in a team was nothing new to me, but being away from home was. Working with the same people day in day out allows you to make new connections and provide you with a family type atmosphere away from home that really can help consolidate the issue of settling in.

College of the Canyons, California
College Scholarships USA helped me to realise a fantastic opportunity. Many of my friends regret not going to the US, so I am glad I did with their help.
