Andrea Alcid / More Scholarships »
Last Update: May  21, 2020

The life of a student-athlete is no easy feat. With relentless hours of training outside of their school curriculum, a student’s love for any sport can turn into a full time job. Unfortunately, this dedication doesn’t always lead to a wealthy reward like making it into the NFL or U.S. Women’s Soccer Team. But it can be enough to qualify for valuable scholarships to further their education. In 2017, only 181,306 out of 7.3 million high school student-athletes received a sports scholarship. 

With a high demand of student-athletes seeking financial assistance for their college careers, competition is fierce. We have developed a list of scholarships for student-athletes to level the playing field. We encourage you to apply to any of these that you qualify!

Remember that student-athletes are not limited to only sports scholarships. Check out our other lists of scholarships for more opportunities. Best of luck!
