In July 2012, FirstPoint USA became one of the first sports scholarship agencies to become approved and certified by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletics Association).
NCAA Division 1 colleges and universities are only permitted to work with scholarship agencies that are approved through the NCAA scouting service approval process.
The NCAA is recognised as the main governing body of American college sport. The association oversees 89 championships in 23 sports. There are more than 400,000 student-athletes competing in three divisions at over 1,000 colleges and universities within the NCAA.
The approval process was implemented by the NCAA national office, to ensure compliance with legislated requirements governing the elements required to permit an institution’s subscription and interaction with scholarship agencies and their prospective athletes.
FirstPoint USA’s scholarship service is one of the most comprehensive and successful in the World. The company has assisted over 4000 student-athletes with their placement at American colleges and universities since 2001.
