Athletic Scholarships

An athletic scholarship is a type of scholarship awarded to student-athletes by their individual colleges or universities. This type of scholarship for students helps to financially support them as they pursue their academic and athletic goals. Different types of scholarships are available, and the eligibility requirements vary depending on the institution.

To apply for an athletic scholarship, students must first meet the basic eligibility requirements set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). These include having a high school diploma or equivalent, being certified by an accredited medical authority, and registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Once these requirements are met, students can fill out an application form and submit it to their chosen college or university.
