“The Bugg Scholarship provided me with financial support that really helped me during my time out in America as a student-athlete at Southeastern Louisiana. The experience of playing and studying in America has changed my life and I can’t thank the team at U.S Sports Scholarships and sponsors Richard and Jenny enough!”
