Soccer scholarship in America
Paying for university in America thanks to your passion is possible with UNI Student Advisors: for more information you can take a look at Alessandro Benedetti who, thanks to the support of our team, has received a football scholarship of $90,000 for his four years in college.
America is one of the few countries in the world where you can continue to practice your sport at a competitive level and at the same time get an education of the highest level. Alessando says: “I decided to study in the United States because I was fascinated by the fact that I could study in a real American college and play football (soccer) at the same time. Unfortunately,where I am from if you want to pursue a university career at a high level, you often have to abandon your athletic career. In America, on the other hand, I have the opportunity to receive an excellent academic education and at the same time carry on my passion for sport”.
We at UNI Student Advisors know that each student is unique in terms of their academic career and experience and for this reason we offer our clients ad hoc advice aimed at maximizing the positive aspects of their profile, while taking into account aspects that could penalize them. Alessandro has certainly benefited from this way of working, and about his experience he says: “" I failed a year in high school and my GPA was not particularly high. I believed that these elements could affect my admission to American universities. UNI Student Advisors gave me the courage to try and achieve my goal and, above all, was able to get me a very high scholarship”. Regarding our support, he adds: "My advisors have prepared 3 lists with all the names and emails of the coaches. They then contacted them directly, managing all the contacts with the coaches on my behalf, negotiating the best scholarship for me. The process lasted over 9 months and my advisors worked hard until we received a satisfactory offer. I found their approach of creating a joint email account particularly useful. This way my mother and I could continuously monitor their work and progress in negotiations"
