ASSESS­MENT OF OPPOR­TU­NITIES AND AGREE­MENT

Mit der Vorbe­rei­tung auf Sport­stipendium kann man nicht früh genug beginnen. Gut und gerne auch schon bis zu 2 Jahre vor dem Studi­en­start in den USA. Aller­dings konnten wir auch Sportler vermit­teln, die sich teil­weise erst zwei Monate vor dem Studi­en­start bei uns gemeldet haben. Ein kurzes Zeit­fenster sollte dich also nicht davon abhalten, die Chancen­einschätzung bei Scho­l­ar­book auszu­füllen. Passt dein akade­mi­sches und sport­li­ches Profil, bekommst du alle Infor­ma­tionen inkl. eines kosten­losen Bera­tungs­ge­sprächs, um eine Entschei­dung über deine Zukunft treffen zu können. Nach der Wahl eines Service­pa­kets beginnt die Zusam­men­ar­beit.

Esti­ma­ting Your Chances

SPORT

Your chance at an athletic scho­l­ar­ship depends on the quality and number of American talents in your sport.

Athletic LEVEL

The better you are in your sport, the higher your chance to get a high scho­l­ar­ship.

AGE

The sooner you go to the US after you graduate, the better. The coaches always look at the upside an athletes brings to the table.

ACADEMIC LEVEL

Athletic perfor­mance is the gateway to a good scho­l­ar­ship. Good academic perfor­mances can further enhance your scho­l­ar­s­hips.

OVER­CO­MING

ACADEMIC HURDLES
In addi­tion to the athletic requi­re­ments for a sports scho­l­ar­ship, you also have to meet some academic requi­re­ments. However, these are not as strict in the USA as they are in other parts of the world. In the USA, you can theo­re­ti­cally start studying without a high school diploma.

High school gradua­tion

Just like here, a high school diploma is suffi­cient to qualify for study in the United States. Big plus: In the USA there is no numerus clausus due to the higher finan­cial barriers.

Secon­dary School Certi­fi­cate AND Appren­ti­ce­ship

If you started an appren­ti­ce­ship right after gradua­ting from secon­dary school, you can start studying in the USA after gradua­tion. This option is limited to univer­si­ties that belong to the NAIA asso­cia­tion.

Secon­dary School Certi­fi­cate

Yes, you’ve read that correctly! Even with a secon­dary school leaving certi­fi­cate, there is the possi­bi­lity to study in the USA. The General Educa­tion Test (GED) makes it possible! This test certi­fies that you have success­fully completed high school and enti­tles you to study at a junior college. After two years of basic studies, you will receive a certi­fi­cate that enables you to complete your bachelor’s degree at a regular univer­sity in two more years.

YOU ALREADY STUDY? NO PROBLEM!

You don’t have to bury your dream if you’ve already started studying at home. There are now two options for you. Either you switch directly to the USA to finish your bachelor’s degree or you switch to the USA for your master’s degree. In order to have the best possible chances, you should try to stick to the stan­dard period of study. For the master’s program you need a completed bachelor’s degree.

COMPLETE

YOUR PROFILE
After star­ting the colla­bo­ra­tion, you start your path to a sports scho­l­ar­ship with your personal athlete manager. He will help you to complete all the necessary steps to complete your profile and to be able to make a decision.

CREATE YOUR ATHLETE PROFILE

We will create your athlete profile based on your athletic and academic back­ground. In order to under­line the facts given in the profile, we need video footage of you in action. No worries! We take over the editing of the videos and let you appear in the best possible way.

MAKE CONTACT WITH THE Coaches

After conta­c­ting the coaches, it’s your turn to get a sense which coach would be the perfect fit for you. Of course, your athletes manager is always on your side. Nevertheless, the coaches would also like to write and speak to you in order to get to know you as a person.

TAKE ACADEMIC TESTS

On the way to the USA you have to take various entry tests. For prospec­tive Bachelor students, these are the TOEFL and SAT tests. The tests certify your skills in the English language and other subject areas. But no worries! You can’t fail the tests and repeat them as often as you want. Our expe­ri­enced language teachers will help you prepare and make sure that the tests do not become an obstacle on your way to the USA.
Commit­ting

TO A COLLEGE

For us it is extre­mely important that your offer perfectly fits your academic, athletic and finan­cial requie­re­ments. For this reason, we focus on your indi­vi­dual wishes and expec­ta­tions and make sure that the univer­sity meets your requi­re­ments and offers your degree program. It is parti­cu­larly important to us that the coaches focus on conti­nuous deve­lo­p­ment of their athletes!

Your athlete manager will be a very valu­able compa­nion in your decision-making.

SIGNING THE OFFER,
