Would you like to get a scholarship and perfectly combine your sports and your studies in the US? Just fill out our Assessment of Opportunities.Let's go
It is especially challenging to estimate the exact criteria for a tennis scholarship. Since the college coaches evaluate each player’s skills individually for their decision, when awarding a scholarship. Therefore, it is especially important that you fill out our Opportunity Assessment so we can determine your chances as soon as possible. Once we have received your Opportunity Assessment, our tennis expert Jaime Vázquez will have a look at your information and give you an individual assessment.
Experience has shown that we can also give you a good estimate from seeing your results from your league.
5 STEPS TO A Tennis 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. For all the remaining organisational steps you will receive our support and we will complete all steps for you.

When should I apply?
The best time to get a tennis 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’s studies.
Of course you can also go for only a few semesters 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.
One example is Yannick Möhring who could simultaneously do his Master’s degree and play on a high level:
“I’ve played tennis since I was 5 years old. I have always practiced a lot, but I had never even thought of playing tennis on a higher level. In my opinion I’m only slightly above an average player. Two years ago I got seriously injured and then I thought it would not be possible anymore to improve further in the long term. Since I did not do my Bachelor’s degree abroad, I wanted to make up for this with a Master’s degree abroad. An acquaintance had told me about Scholarbook. I didn’t really believe I had a chance, but I still filled out the Opportunity Assessment. Then when I got an email from Scholarbook saying that I have a realistic chance I was thrilled and my training enthusiasm came back. As it all worked out, I was overjoyed and totally over the moon. I would never have thought it possible that my hobby could finance a large part of my studies. I am therefore grateful to Scholarbook for their efforts and that they made my dream come true!”
Yannick Möhring, University of Findlay, Ohio
In all cases you should contact us no later than 12 to 15 months before you plan to go to an American college.
How is the training structured in America?
The spring training is intensive because that’s the main season. There are often up to six practices per week on the court and seven strength and conditioning workouts. The only recovery day of the week is usually on Sunday. The rest days can also shift depending on games.
The following video shows the daily life of the North Carolina State University Team.
During the fall semester, the season is not as intense. The athletes get to focus more on academics, the amount of practices is reduced and there are only some tournaments for preparation. During the fall, the players usually get the weekends off.
What does the season look like?
The season for both the women and men’s college teams begins in January and ends with the NCAA National Championship in May. So theoretically you could also play tournaments in your home country during the summer.
Depending on how far your college team advances in the tournaments you could have between 20 and 30 games in the spring. In the fall there could also be three to six preparation tournaments.
Only America has such a great opportunity to combine studies with sports, which is especially important with a time-intensive sport as tennis. This attracts a lot of talented players to the land of opportunities, which also reflects on the performance: College tennis is at a very high level.
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!
