USA Volleyball Scholarships
What is a U.S volleyball scholarship?
A U.S volleyball scholarship is a form of scholarship to attend a U.S college or university awarded to an individual based on their academic and athletic capabilities. A volleyball scholarship can cover anywhere between 0-100% of costs and these offers are authorised by the coaches at American colleges/universities. Earning a volleyball scholarship will allow you the opportunity to pursue both an academic and volleyball career simultaneously. This means that you will be studying for a university degree in a subject of your choice whilst training and competing at an elite level.
What determines how much scholarship I get in the USA?
Your scholarship will depend on many factors including your athletic ability and academic standing, as well as your coaches assigned budget for the season. However, don’t worry it is our job to ensure that we find you an American college which best suits your preferences and capabilities. If, for example, a university costs $50,000 a year all in and the coach is giving you a scholarship worth $35,000, then this is a partial scholarship as there is a $15,000 shortfall that the coach wants you to contribute towards the costs of attending the university. Most partial scholarships come with the incentive that if you perform well, both on the court and in the classroom, then the coach can reward you with a scholarship increase and cover any costs that you had been contributing towards.
Can I receive a full 100% volleyball scholarship in the USA?
A volleyball scholarship can cover many, sometimes all of the costs associated with earning a university degree. In return, the student-athlete will represent the university in their respective sport and maintain a good level of academic performance. The level of scholarship granted is fundamentally dependent on what the coach of the American college wants to offer. A 100% scholarship or ‘full ride’ covers the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, and textbooks, leaving only incidental costs to pay for the student-athlete. In this case, 100% of the costs are covered and it can be worth up to a staggering $400,000 over four years. At U.S Sports Scholarships, one in every four of our athletes will typically receive a full scholarship.
