Thinking of heading to the USA on a soccer scholarship? Consult League Football Education’s Guide to American Scholarships, which offers practical and independent advice to young players who are considering taking up a sports scholarship in the United States.
Available to download from September at www.lfe.org.uk/downloads/apprentice-brochures this booklet offers an insight in to what you have to consider if you are thinking about heading to North America. It covers Eligibility, Entrance Requirements, SAT’s and how to get a ‘Soccer Scholarship’.
SATs should be treated the same as UCAS applications and be taken well in advance of leaving the ASE programme. Tests will run between 1 October – 3 June at a variety of centres across the country. To locate your nearest test centre and for further information on SAT’s please visit: http://sat.collegeboard.org/home.
Test centres will also be listed within ‘A Guide to American Scholarships’.
