High School Athletic Scholarship

For some students, a high school athletic scholarship is their best chance of getting a quality education. According to recent studies, the yearly cost of attending a public four-year university is $6,185, while private universities average an incredible $23,712 per annum. While traditional student aid and loan programs can help, student-athletes will want to put themselves in the best positions possible to receive athletic scholarships to the schools of their choice.

Some of the top universities in the U.S. are NCAA Division I and Division II schools, including Ivy Leaguers like Harvard and Yale. A high school athletic scholarship to one of these schools not only leads to time out on the court or field, but also access to one of the finest educations in the country. Does this sound like an impossible dream? It doesn't have to be.

High School Athletic Scholarships Are Increasing Each Year

There are plenty of high school athletic scholarships available from colleges-about 150,000, equaling more than $1 billion-but they won't come looking for you or your student. Instead, the student-athlete hoping for a scholarship has to make sure he or she stands out from the pack and catches recruiters' and coaches' eyes. Fortunately, funding for athletic programs continues to rise (according to USA Today, athletic budgets typically rose by 25 percent from 1995 to 2001), increasing a student-athlete's chances.
