How long will it take to completely work through all of The Athletic Scholarship Guide?

It all depends on what type of person you are. Some people will read through all the information in a couple days, whereas others read through each file bit by bit over a couple of weeks as they need it. Best-case scenario, you will enter the recruiting process approximately 2 years before you plan on starting studying in the US, as this is when coaches start looking for talent!

Can The Athletic Scholarship Guide be applied to every type of sport?

So long as your sport is listed under “scholarship-relevant sports”, exactly which one you compete in, plays a very minor role. This is because the recruiting/application process is almost exactly the same for every sport. For every other sport that is not listed, scholarships are not available for these sports and the purchase of The Athletic Scholarship Guide would make little sense. If you are unsure about your sport, search the web or contact us for more information.

With the purchase of The Athletic Scholarship Guide, will I receive an invoice?

Yes, after confirmation of your purchase we will send you an invoice by email (including tax).

Does The Athletic Scholarship Guide guarantee me a scholarship?

If you meet all of the essential athletic and academic requirements, comply with the guidelines set down in the Athletic Scholarship Guide, and are driven in you pursuit of your goal, then the chances that you will end up with an athletic scholarship are going to be very high; all without having to invest a huge amount of money. However, we cannot give a guarantee – to do so would be unprofessional. If an applicant has a realistic self-assessment, fulfills all the requirements, and responsibly goes about the completion of all the given tasks, only then can we assume he or she will have a very good chance of obtaining a (full) partial scholarship.

How much does The Athletic Scholarship Guide cost and what does it include?

The Athletic Scholarship Guide contains all the contact details of the Head Coaches (NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA and NJCAA) in your chosen scholarship-relevant sport and a step-by-step manual detailing how to organize a scholarship in the US by yourself, this is then supplemented by an (extremely) detailed knowledge database. With your purchase you will gain access to all of the above for a certain time period. 3-days cost 5USD, whereas selecting the 30-days option will cost 30USD. You don’t have to cancel your contract if you want out, instead if you want to extend your subscription all you need is to purchase the following month. Dependable and professional companies that specialize in placing athletes at universities in the US with scholarships, will usually cost between 2000 and 3500USD depending on if a placement is successful. The Athletic Scholarship Guide however, will only cost a fraction of that!

Who can benefit from The Athletic Scholarship Guide?

The Athletic Scholarship Guide is aimed at all athletes and their parents who are seriously considering making trying to get an athletic scholarship in the USA. They also want to be able to organize and plan it themselves, without enlisting the help of an (expensive) scholarship agency.
