U.S Soccer Scholarships


What is an athletic soccer scholarship?

An athletic soccer scholarship is a form of scholarship to attend a U.S college or university awarded to an individual based on their academic and athletic capabilities. A soccer scholarship can cover anywhere between 0-100% of costs and these offers are authorised by the coaches at American colleges/universities.

What determines how much scholarship I get?

Your scholarship will depend on many factors including your playing ability and academic standing, as well as your coaches assigned budget for the season. However, don’t worry it is our job to ensure that we find you an American college which best suits your preferences and capabilities.

Can I receive a full 100% scholarship in the USA?

The level of scholarship granted is fundamentally dependent on what the coach of the American college wants to offer. A 100% scholarship or ‘full ride’ covers the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, and textbooks, leaving only incidental costs to pay for the student-athlete. In this case, 100% of the costs are covered and it can be worth up to $240,000 over four years.

Am I eligible for an athletic scholarship in the USA?

If you are aged between 16-23, in education or have been in the last 2 years and have a clean criminal record whilst playing your sport at a competitive level, you are well positioned to become a successful U.S Soccer Scholarship applicant. However, only the best young players will be considered for a scholarship by coaches so ideally you will have played at an Academy, Centre of Excellence or have represented your County side.
