SCHOLARSHIP CONNECT

was founded in 2011 after we spent 8 years researching and voluntarily assisting student-athletes to US colleges and universities.

Our staff are vastly experienced in the key skill areas of talent identification and development. We have built up countrywide (USA) networks of coach contacts and developed strong friendships with many coaches over the years due to the honesty and integrity with which we afford their programs.

The way we work ensures student-athletes attract interest from coaches located in the best areas to live, study and play in the USA. We have worked in 32 of the 50 US States and are the UK's leading provider to Sunshine states and coastal areas.

We offer an outstanding service and value for money.  We are consultants not agents.

QUALITY

The US scholarship placement industry is unregulated. Sometimes private individuals establish accreditation firms to discredit genuine consultants. This industry has many good consultancy businesses and we pride ourselves on being a leader. The UK Office of Fair Trading and List of Regulatory Authorities do not provide a Regulator or Authority (to Regulate) the industry. Scholarship providers must by their own conscience, do everything possible to act in the best interests of and to satisfy the requirements of clients, colleges / universities, and the US regulatory athletic bodies of the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. Our number one consideration at Scholarship Connect is the ‘well-being’ of our clients. We full counsel clients about USA opportunities. We provide 24/7 assistance. We keep fees low and service level high. We operate with honesty, fairness and professionalism. We fully respect and work to the requirements of the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. We operate with high integrity, carrying out our work with due skill, care and diligence. Where remedial work is required, this is provided free of charge (in accordance with the provisions of our Terms). We explain in advance the award of a soccer scholarship by a US college or university is not guaranteed, and is determined by the player's academic and athletic ability. We meet with players and their parents when consulting.
