Scholarships in America offer the opportunity to experience a vibrant university lifestyle in a new culture and the chance to play football while studying for a degree.

In recent seasons a growing number of Apprentices have taken advantage of the opportunity to undertake a scholarship in America and made the most of funding opportunities, a vibrant and diverse university lifestyle and the chance to play football at a good level while at the same time studying towards a degree.

League Football Education’s (LFE) Guide to American Scholarships should provide you with enough information to understand what the opportunity is and the required process to make it a reality – you can read the guide here.

It is possible to secure a scholarship without any external assistance, but this is not always easy or realistic due to the timing of being released from a club or deciding late and so LFE conducted a thorough assessment process to find an organisation to assist in supporting Apprentices to transition to the USA.

LFE maintains a successful relationship with PASS4Soccer who offer a significant discount for Apprentice players (cost of £1,250) wishing to access PASS4Soccer’s network of services – which covers all aspects of gaining a scholarship as well as placement aftercare.
