"So what do you have to pay for a scholarship?"
US university fees can range from $20,000 to $60,000+ per year. The 100% full scholarship will be offered to only elite players with the right academic backgrounds. A full scholarship covers tuition fees, room and food costs. Do not expect a full scholarship even if you are an elite athlete. The offer of a 90% scholarship based on $30,000 fees is $3,000 to pay per annum. This is better than no offer at all and is significantly less than UK university costs!
A full tuition scholarship means just that; the room and food costs need to be found by the student/parents. Be clear about terminology and be wary of your friends or current coaches who say they can get you a scholarship. Gaining a scholarship is very competitive and requires professional advice.
Universities will offer either a percentage of the total fees or ask for a specific sum in year 1. This Year 1 offer may stay level throughout the course or may go down each year. Once a fee is agreed it is unusual that a university will ask for subsequent annual increases. Please note though, scholarship agreements are binding for 1 year only and renewed annually subject to the completion of academic grades, good behaviour and consistent performance.
Universities may require student athletes to pay their own Health Insurance. Costs for this can vary between $500 and $1200 depending on where the insurance is purchased. You can save considerably by purchasing one of the Long Stay Study Abroad Insurance package options available through our partners.
PASS4SOCCER will provide best advice and a value for money service.
