A sports scholarship is awarded to an individual by a college or university on the basis that they attend that institute.
There are two types of scholarship on offer. A full scholarship is where all aspects of the students’ fees (100%) are covered by the institute – including tuition, living costs, food and books. A partial scholarship is an award that covers anything from 5-99% of the fees.
Your total scholarship award will be determined by:
2. Athletic Scholarship
Range from 5-100% of total fees funded by institution
Awarded based upon the individual's athletic ability
The greater athletic ability the greater the scholarship award
1. Academic Scholarship
Up to 40% of total fees funded by institution
Awarded based upon the individual's academic ability
Sliding scale added between GPA and Test scores
The greater academic ability the greater the scholarship award
Please note that scholarships can be stacked, meaning a partial academic and partial athletic scholarship can be combined to give student athletes a larger overall scholarship award.
Academic scholarship = 15% + athletic scholarship = 60%, total scholarship = 75% deducted from total fees. (See scholarship breakdown)
