How does academic scholarship work?
An academic scholarship will be awarded to student-athletes for high academic success and depends on the average GPA score. Academic scholarship is assigned to the student for one year of study and is reviewed at the end of each academic year. Academic scholarship can be from $ 1,000 to $ 12,000 a year, depending on the university.
For high schools graduates, the SAT score determines the possibility of obtaining an academic scholarship. The amount of academic scholarship is based on the SAT score.
For transfer students, the SAT exam is not required. Determining the possibility of obtaining an academic scholarship occurs by evaluating the transcripts received at their university, into the US GPA system.
Academic scholarship is an excellent addendum for students with a partial athletic scholarship.
