US Sports Scholarship Placement

Becoming a US scholarship athlete is more than just your sporting ability.  With FirstPoint USA, students are assisted academically and athletically throughout the scholarship process with the implementation and oversight of a personalised recruitment strategy by a team of experienced consultants, tutors and mentors.

Typically, there are two options for you to consider when deciding how best to secure a sports scholarship to an American university. 

Option 1 - would be for you to consider pursuing a sports scholarship on your own.  This is not always easy, but it is certainly possible.  All of the information required is available online and this is a popular route for many scholarship hopefuls. There is clearly a reason why we exist, however the main benefit of pursuing the scholarship process by yourself is that it is completely free to do so. 

Option 2 - would be to sign with FirstPoint USA. This means that you would have to pay a fee for our services, and we would handle all aspects of the scholarship process on your behalf.  All FirstPoint student-athletes benefit from utilising our expertise, experience and network whilst saving you the time and hassle of the scholarship process; ensuring a successful outcome for you and your family. 

FirstPoint Service

US degrees offer fantastic opportunities at some of the world’s best universities and colleges. It’s a life-changing experience, but finding the perfect place to spend the next three or four years isn’t always straightforward. The right course, the right culture, the cost, the admin…they all have to be considered at the same time as studying for critical exams. That where FirstPoint USA comes in – we’ve been doing this for 18 years, and taken the hassle away from over 10,000 students and their families - placing them with one of 2,900 leading US universities and colleges partners. And raising a whopping $200 million in full and partial scholarships.

Our comprehensive service covers every aspect of your placement and scholarship experience; including admissions, college and university match-making, scholarship and funding application, brokering, SAT and ACT advice and guidance, and support for student visa application - a hands-on process that can take between 1 year and 18 months from start to finish. FirstPoint USA takes the hassle out of a process that often causes students to stay put… And once we’ve found your ideal college or university, our pastoral care is there for you and your family during your 4 years of study.
