The NCAA awards a $7,500 scholarship for student athletes

Student athletes can get funding for school from the NCAA

The NCAA is the place to go looking for college funding if you’re a minority or female college student pursuing intercollegiate athletics

Traditional and online universities are getting more expensive, as each year passes and the economy falters. So even if the work force is in need of more and more specialists, less students are willing to undertakethe financial trial of paying for a college education online or offline. And who can blame them?

Online universities have changed a game a little bit. They allow working students or people who can’t dedicate themselves completely to studying to earn an education – and despite making it more affordable than their traditional counterparts, college education online is still pretty expensive.

That’s why most students have visited the financial aid office at their school at least once. But sometimes your university runs out of funds or its criteria is too strict. So what do you do then? You look for funding somewhere else.

How do you go about that? There are several ways to search for scholarships, but the easiest route is to think about what defines you as a student? Are you an athlete? Or maybe a poet? Or maybe you are very good at shooting video?

Use your special skill to look for scholarship providers who want to reward you for your talents. Take for example the National Collegiate Athletic Association. As the name indicates, the association wants to help athletes get a higher education on the cheap and offers a wide range of scholarship opportunities to that end.

Here we’re going to talk about the Ethnic Minority and Women’s Enhancement Scholarships which is aimed at minority and female students who are planning to attend a sports administration program, while planning a career in intercollegiate athletics such as athletic administration, coaching or training.

In order to apply you will must enroll in an NCAA member institution on a full time basis and be at least in your final season of NCAA athletics eligibility.

We should also note this is a scholarship for students seeking to enroll in postgraduate studies or graduate level studies, so if you’re currently enrolled with a bachelor degree you won’t be eligible to apply just yet. As soon as you complete your degree, you will be able to apply for a grant with the NCAA provided the other requirements are also fulfilled.

Furthermore, you need to have a minimum GPA of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, including all undergraduate hours earned at any undergraduate institutions you have attended up until now.

On top of that the NCAA also notes that candidates must be outstanding citizens and excellent role models hoping to become a part of intercollegiate athletics.

If you think you fit the criteria you can go ahead and apply for the scholarship. Remember that you have to be part of an ethnic minority (like African American or Native Americans) or a female student in order to apply for the grant worth up to $7,500. A total of 26 grants will be awarded in total. You have until February 15, 2018 to apply for this scholarships and we wish you good luck.
