Colleges worldwide offer student athletes scholarships to attend their school and compete on their specific sports team. The process is long and grueling, but certain tips and tricks can make the experience easier and more structured. 

To get offered an opportunity for a sports scholarship, athletes have to be “scouted”. Being scouted allows athletes to have representatives from different schools to watch them compete, which can then allow a scholarship opportunity.  

The process of being scouted includes emails, one on one discussions, and a large amount of coordination between the athlete and college representatives. The Sports Engine Twitter page posted tips to help make the recruiting process efficient. 

Opportunities for sport scholarships do not come on a silver platter. Effort and dedication take part in the process on becoming scouted.
