Sports Scholarships

American Student Athlete Support

There is a lot of talk about how much money college sports generates. But did you know that more than 90 percent of the NCAA’s revenue goes to support student-athletes in America?

The NCAA and its member campuses are committed to providing opportunities for student-athletes to compete in college while pursuing their educations.

The value of the collegiate athletics experience is something you can’t put a price on. College sports provide opportunities for student-athletes to grow, develop leadership skills, get involved in their communities and, most important, earn a degree.

Of more than 1,100 member colleges and universities in the NCAA, only 23 schools make more money than they spend on sports each year. For the rest, resources from the NCAA help schools fund $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships every year, making the Association second only to the federal government in funding college education.

There are more than 450,000 student-athletes, and the majority of them will go pro in something other than sports. Those student-athletes will take with them not just their degrees, but the experiences of college athletics and the life lessons they learned along the way. At Route 1 Scholarship consultancy we aim to provide as much accurate information as possible to make the transition for all of the student athletes as smooth as we can make it.
