The concept behind US Fencing Scholarships is quite simple; it provides talented amateur sportsmen and women with an exclusive opportunity to pursue both an academic and Fencing career simultaneously. A Fencing Scholarship to an American university can cover some, and at times all, of the costs associated with earning a university degree. In return, the student-athlete will represent the university in Fencing and maintain a good level of academic performance.
A Fencing scholarship to the USA is a unique opportunity to pursue an academic and playing career within some of the best academic and sporting environments in the World. College Fencing is a very competitive sport and the coaches are scouting for athletes who have a lot of future potential. To increase your chances of being noticed, you should regularly attend fencing summer camps, and tournaments to gauge the intensity at this level of fencing. The NCAA Division I offers each college 4.5 scholarships for men and 5 for women. Division II offers 4.5 scholarships to each college for men, and 4.5 to women. As the standard of Fencing is so high, only the absolute top fencers will be approached with offers. .
To be considered for a FirstPoint USA Fencing Scholarship, you should be physically fit, have a high level of skill in Fencing; you should possess a real drive and ambition to succeed. Academically, you must have completed high school and have grades to meet the initial-eligibilty requirements for the NCAA, NAIA or NJCAA. Good academic standing is an essential aspect of life as a student-athlete and this must be maintained throughout your collegiate sports career. Failure to do so could see you prohibited from training and participating, and potentially lead to your scholarship being withdrawn completely. The NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA each have strict rules regarding the good academic standing of all competing athletes.
*IMPORTANT: You must be between 15 and 19 years of age to be eligible for the FirstPoint USA Scholarship program.
