Many people mistakenly think that the division of leagues is based solely on the performance level of the teams. In reality, however, completely different aspects also play a role.

WHAT SHOULD YOU PAY ATTENTION TO?

Depending on the sport and the sports association, it is important to differentiate between “head count” and “equivalency” sports. In “head count” sports, only full scholarships may be awarded to athletes. In equivalency sports, the university can distribute a certain maximum number of scholarships among a certain number of players. For example, if a coach has 10 scholarships available, he can award either 10 full scholarships, 20 partial scholarships (50% scholarships), or 5 full scholarships and 10 partial scholarships (and so on).

Which factors decide the worth of a scholarship?

Theoretically, there are countless factors that can play a role in the decision for a sports scholarship. However, in recent years we have identified three main factors that have the greatest impact on the scholarship amount. drei Hauptfaktoren identifiziert, die den größten Einfluss auf die Höhe des Stipendiums haben.

Sports

Your sporting achievements are the strongest argument for a high scholarship - especially in team sports, a meaningful highlight video is the heart of marketing for the coaches.

Grades

As already mentioned, you can qualify for an academic scholarship through outstanding academic achievements such as good grades or high test scores (e.g. TOEFL or SAT). These types of scholarships can be up to $20,000 per year.

Timing

Each university has a limited number of scholarships to offer and therefore the time factor also plays a major role in the awarding of scholarships. The closer the season gets, the fewer scholarships the coach has available. It is therefore important to apply as early as possible and keep the requirements of the university and the sports association in mind.
