In recent seasons a growing number of Apprentices have taken advantage of the opportunity to undertake a scholarship in America and made the most of funding opportunities, a vibrant and diverse university lifestyle in a new culture and the chance to play football at a good level while at the same time studying towards a degree.
LFE’s Guide to American Scholarships should provide you with enough information to understand what the opportunity is and the required process to make it a reality – you can read the guide by visiting this page
It is possible to secure a scholarship without any external assistance but this is not always easy or realistic due to the timing of being released from a club or deciding late and so during 2013 LFE conducted a thorough assessment process to find an organisation to assist LFE in supporting Apprentices to transition to the USA.
LFE now maintains a successful relationship with PASS4Soccer who offer a significant discount for Apprentice players (cost of £750) wishing to access PASS4Soccer’s
network of services – which covers all aspects of gaining a scholarship as well as placement aftercare.
