A US University education is exciting and rewarding, but it can feel like a leap into the unknown. The Directors of Future Pro USA are specialists in US scholarship programmes so we are able to answer many of your likely questions.


What standards do I have to achieve to obtain a scholarship?

There is no hard-and-fast rule for this. It is a mix of sporting and academic achievement, plus personal commitment. There are many aspects that we use to negotiate the best scholarship for you. With over 3000 universities and colleges in the US, it is our job to find the right place to suit your sporting and academic credentials. Not everyone can be the best, but enthusiasm and determination are essential. Scholarships are awarded on a year by year basis and whist a reduction is rare, it is possible to receive an increased scholarship for good performance athletically and academically. 

I really want to go to a US University on a Scholarship but I'm concerned about the cost, just how expensive is it?

University costs and scholarships vary greatly. It is possible to obtain a ‘Full Ride’ which would mean all costs including tuition, accommodation, books, food and travel would all be covered by the university. More typically, the scholarship will be a few thousand dollars each year. It all depends on your academic and athletic credentials. Overall, University in America is a slightly lower cost and much better value than the UK.

What are NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA?

National Collegiate Athletic Association

National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics

National Junior College Athletic Association

These are the governing bodies involved with College Sport in America. Every college or university with competitive athletics will be governed by one of these. The NCAA is the largest governing body in the world and naturally, it is a complex process to be cleared to compete. Future Pro USA will help you through this process and make things as easy as possible.

When should I apply to join Future Pro USA?

If you are hoping to go to University in the next 3 years, the answer is ASAP. Coaches recruit athletes well in advance so the sooner you apply the more options you will have. Also, some of the best placements come from helping younger athletes progress over a period of years, with lots of time to communicate that progress to a selection of University coaches.
