5 STEPS TO A SWIMMNING SCHOLARSHIP
OVERCOMING ALL ACDEMIC HURDLES
There are three possibilities with which you can easily qualify for a study in the USA: 1. You complete successfully a good entrance qualification such as the vocational diploma, the Abitur (German equivalent of the “A Levels”) or the Matura (Austrian and Swiss Qualification). 2. You have your intermediate secondary school certificate and complete the so-called GED test. 3. You have completed a vocational training. Of course you have to meet only one of the three criteria.
Ideally, you would contact us about 1 to 1.5 years before you begin your studies in the US. Simply fill out our Assessment of Opportunities. You are a spontaneous person and the idea to study in the US just came to your mind at the last minute? No problem, in exceptional circumstances we can mediate your universtity place even up to 3 months prior to commencing studies. Once we receive your Assessment of Opportunity, we will contact you within 24 hours with our response.
To complete your candidate profile we need video footage showing you during training and during competition. We also collect all information about your athletic and academic background. Your video and the added information will complete your athlete profile to then receive offers from the coaches.
Once we have introduced you to the coaches, you will receive your scholarship offers. Your supervisor will advise you on your offers with regard to the athletic and academic interest of the university and together you choose your absolute favourite.
SIGNING THE OFFER
Congratulations! You have found your dream university including an athletic scholarship. Now you only have to seal your choice with the signing of your scholarship contract and apply for your visa.

“When I started my season last summer I though this would be the end of my swimming career and after high school I would have to go to Military Training School. Thanks to Scholarbook I got the idea to rather study in the USA, and I ended up at Limestone College. I am looking forward to this adventure. To support Scholarbook I would like to say thank you once again!”
When should I apply?
The best time to get a swimming scholarship in the US is directly after you graduate from high school. The coaches like to recruit younger students so they can build a better athlete over the course of your bachelor studies.
Of course you can also go for only a few semester to the US or even do your Master’s degree while receiving a scholarship. This is made possible through our excellent relationships with the coaches.
In all cases you should contact us about a year before you plan to go to an American college. The swimming season always begins in the fall semester.
How is the training structured in America?
The highly professional American swimming coaches have different philosophies. Some rely more on quantity, while others believe in the quality of training. In all cases, training will be very time consuming. Often there will be practices early in the morning, before school and then late in the afternoon again. The weekend is sometimes also used for training, so the total amount of training quickly gets up to 25 hours per week.
For swimmers all over the world, a scholarship is therefore an excellent opportunity to reach the top international level.
You can build up your body and you will have a great support team consisting of a team doctor and several physical therapists that are up to date on the latest technique and insights. The modern training facilities will let you reach new heights, again and again.
What does the season look like?
The season starts late in October and ends with the National Championships in early April. During the season there are so-called “dual-meets”, a direct contest between two universities or large invitational events with multiple universities. There will be many spectators at the competitions. Conference Championships and the NCAA National Championships will even be televised.
Around Christmas time there is a short break from competition. Many university teams use this break for training camps in the South where it is warm, for example in Florida. Except of course if your college is already in the South, then you can train outdoors all year.
Without Scholarbook I would probably had a hard time getting a scholarship for a Master’s degree in the United States. It was a successful, organized and very pleasant cooperation!
