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.
