There are two options for you to consider when deciding how best to secure a sports scholarship to an American university.
Option 1 - would be for you to consider pursuing a sports scholarship on your own. This is not always easy, but it is certainly possible. All of the information required is available online and this is a popular route for many scholarship hopefuls. There is clearly a reason why we exist, however the main benefit of pursuing the scholarship process by yourself is that it is completely free to do so.
Option 2 - would be to sign with Be Varsity. This means that you would have to pay a fee for our services and we would handle all aspects of the scholarship process on your behalf. All Be Varsity student-athletes benefit from utilising our expertise, experience and network whilst saving you the time and hassle of the scholarship process; ensuring a successful outcome for you and your family.
Be Varsity’s service has evolved over the years and has been successful in securing scholarships for many sportsmen & women to colleges and universities across the United States of America.
OUR FEES: £2750.00 (British Pounds)
This is a one-off fee and entitles our student-athletes to a service that lasts for approximately 5 years; with the first year focused on securing suitable scholarship opportunities, and the years that follow providing mentoring and pastoral support to the athlete during their time in America. There is also payment plan available to allow clients to spread the cost of the service fee over a period of time.

Do You Need to Work with an Agency?
No. The scholarship process is one that is open for all to pursue and is free to undertake on your own. For some, the prospect of investing money in the services of a scholarship agency is not viable therefore we would always encourage families to research the process thoroughly and engage with American coaches and universities directly on their own. This is a route that many families will take each year with some success.
When Should You Start the Process?
Ideally, prospective student-athletes will begin the scholarship process in the first half of their penultimate year of secondary school. In the second half of that year, they will then take the SAT or ACT exam for the first time (the exam may be retaken) and begin communication with university coaches. The most intensive time for scholarship recruiting in the USA is between July and December. Many coaches prefer processing and finalising commitments with recruits in those months during the students’ last year of secondary school.
What’s the Next Steps?
To work with us, prospective student-athletes or their parents would submit an initial application, which, after a conversation is followed-up by an interview between the student and one of our scholarship consultants. This is free of charge and we always seek to provide feedback to families after this process. If we believe the individual has a realistic opportunity to secure a scholarship, we will send a proposal offering the family the opportunity to sign with Be Varsity and commence the sports scholarship process.
