Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get a track and field scholarship in the United States?

To qualify for a track and field scholarship, you must have a strong academic record and compete at a high level.

Given that the selection process is standardized and there are hundreds of applicants, it is important to get professional advice to achieve the best results.

Are the requirements different for men and women?

Yes, since American universities offer more scholarship funds for female athletes.

Generally, male athletes have a fairly high chance if they are at NCAA Division I level. But female athletes who have a good national ranking will also have a good chance.

How do I know if I qualify for a scholarship?

There are data tables with certain time trial objectives. If your times are lower or close to the optimal score, your chances will be much higher.

Normally, coaches closely monitor athletes’ progression during the period from 4th year ESO and 1st year Baccalaureate. This is a key period to perform and give your best, since the first and second year of high school are crucial moments when coaches determine if your times are optimal.

What do coaches look for?

Coaches are mainly looking for versatile athletes. In track and field, many athletes specialize in a particular event, but coaches look for well-rounded athletes who can compete, excel and win in several of these events.

One of the reasons for this is that coaches in the United States try to instill a sense of teamwork right from the very beginning. Therefore, they look for athletes who can perform well for the team in a number of competitions and events, in other words, in different distances.

The more effort you put in to improving your times, the sooner you will get noticed by the coaches and chosen for the team. This is the best way to get a scholarship that will finance 100% of your college education.
