These funding programs are open to high school and college students, range from $500 to full tuition and more, are open to students in any state, and cover practically any sport, from baseball, basketball, bowling, and cheerleading to equestrian activities, football, golf, soccer, and tennis. This funding can be used to support study in any subject area, in junior and community colleges, vocational and technical institutions, four-year colleges, and universities.

What Makes This Guide Unique?
There are many guides that give general information about applying for sports scholarships at a specific school. But, only Get Paid to Play provides a comprehensive list of "portable" athletic scholarship--ones that are not tied to a particular institution but can be used at any number of academic institutions.

Plus, much of this funding is not aimed ju detail here. This represents more than $1 million in college scholarships!

Plus, much of this funding is not aimed just at the star athlete. If you've participated in sports, either formally or informally, you may be eligible for this funding.

And, here's another bonus: Get Paid to Play makes it easy to target funding opportunities. Scholarship entries provide all the details you'll need to decide if a program is right for you and where to get an application: eligibility requirements, money awarded, duration of the award, number of scholarships awarded, deadline date, and contact information (including web sites). You can browse these listings, which are grouped into "Any Sport" and "Specific Sports," or you can go straight to the index and search by:

  • name of the sport
  • residency requirements
  • where you want to go to school
  • organization sponsoring the scholarship
