Are you an up-and-coming athlete who dreams of making the most of your sporting talent but you also want to get a world-class education at the same time?

Then getting a US college athletic scholarship is your dream come true!

Competing in front of thousands of fans, training at top facilities and earning a degree is amazing enough but paying significantly less for the incredible US college experience is surely the icing on the cake!

The only problem is that getting a sport scholarship is SUPER competitive and there's much more to it than being able to sink a 3-pointer with your eyes closed or scorching the back of the net on the soccer field.

This event will cover:

  • The benefits of studying overseas: employability, experience, independence, networking etc.
  • A detailed breakdown of the US athletic scholarship application process
  • The study / sport balance you can expect as a student-athlete
  • How being a student-athlete can increase your employability
  • The financial benefits of an athletic scholarship
  • The essentials for making your athletic scholarship application stand out from the crowd
  • What you need beyond sporting ability to get into a US college
