A scholarship depends mainly on your athletic skills. The coach has a specific budget, he can distribute it however he wants each year. Depending on how interested he is in you, he will send you an offer, covering for example 60%, 80% or even 100% of the costs. In addition, American universities encourage good school performance with academic scholarships, which are awarded in addition to athletic scholarship. These depend primarily on the SAT, the TOEFL score and grades from school.
