Your scholarship in the USA

College rowing is best known around the world because of the duel between the Harvard and Yale univer­si­ties. Rowing is a very pres­ti­gious sport, espe­cially at the elite univer­si­ties of the Ivy League. Because of this, these schools recruit all over the world. Rowing is also very important outside of the Ivy League and is very well supported by the colleges.

In a time-consuming sport like rowing, it is important to have the right part­ners. In the USA you can develop not only athle­ti­cally, but also acade­mi­cally and posi­tion yourself in the best possible way for your career after your career.

Rowing in the USA

How many scholarships are there?

Ivy League univer­si­ties, such as Harvard or Yale, gene­rally do not award sports scho­l­ar­s­hips. Nevertheless, with our help it is possible to obtain very attrac­tive scho­l­ar­ship offers.

Rowing is a very expen­sive sport. For this reason, there are compa­ra­tively few programs in the USA, but they are allowed to distri­bute a large budget of sports scho­l­ar­s­hips and can almost guarantee an elite level degree.

  • Univer¬≠si¬≠ties with rowing teams: 102
  • Full scho¬≠l¬≠ar¬≠s¬≠hips per team: 20

How is the training in the USA structured?

As in Europe, rowers prac­tice at a high inten­sity-level almost every day in the week. While there are only a few full-time coaches in Germany, the American coaches are paid by the univer­sity and can there­fore dedi­cate them­selves exclu­si­vely to their athletes. Since many colleges also have excel­lent rowing faci­li­ties directly on campus, the athletes do not have to travel long distances to their trai­ning loca­tion.


What does a season at college look like?

Compared to other sports, where the season is often limited to one semester, rowers have compe­ti­tions in fall and spring. In principle, the fall semester is to be seen as a prepa­ra­tory phase, accom­pa­nied by regattas, which often only have longer races in their program. In winter the focus is on prepa­ring for the regatta season in spring, which is supple­mented by a few ergo­meter compe­ti­tions.

In spring the main season at the college begins. Here are the most important regattas, which are used for the quali­fi­ca­tion to the regional and national cham­pions­hips. In most cases, the college season ends in May.


Requirements for your scholarship

Rowing at the colleges in the USA is of a very high stan­dard, as the univer­si­ties recruit world­wide. Addi­tio­nally, there aren’t too many colleges that provide the funding to put toge­ther an entire rowing team.

Nevertheless, you have the chance to get a high scho­l­ar­ship in the USA.

For men, talents should already have started at World and Euro­pean Cham­pions­hips. For women, a top place­ment at state cham­pions­hips or parti­ci­pa­tion in the National cham­pions­hips is often enough.

Don’t worry: even athletes who have not yet achieved this level of success can get a scho­l­ar­ship in the USA. With our chances assess­ment, our experts can look at each athlete indi­vi­du­ally and show their options in detail.
