High school athletes would love to continue playing through hopefully on a scholarship. It would be nice to do what you love and get quality education at the same time. Getting an athletic scholarship should be your priority as your enter your senior year. Here are important questions about athletic scholarships.
- What kind of financial aid do I need? Discuss with the entire family the financial situation you are in. Can you afford to go to college even on a partial scholarship or would you need a full scholarship?
- What do I need to do to earn a scholarship? You will be competing with other outstanding student athletes for a spot on the team. You need to impress coaches and show them that you are deserving of that spot. Ask help from your coaches so they can help you achieve your goals.
- Do I qualify for other types of scholarship? There are more scholarships available to athletes than through the team itself. If you have good grades or test scores, you might qualify for an academic scholarship which can help pay for part of your tuition or the cost of books.
