At CMG, we aim to help as many athletes as possible get scholarships. The highest amount that one can receive is a full scholarship which covers all your expenses including tuition, fees, food, housing, and books. The amount that the scholarship is worth depends on your school and the cost of attendance. Colleges in the US cost anywhere from $25,000-$60,000 per year.

CMG helps place student athletes into the college where they can best further their educational and athletic development.

The likelihood of getting a full scholarship to college depends on multiple factors. The most important factor is your sport. There are two types of scholarships given out to different sports: head count scholarships and equivalency scholarships. Sports with head count scholarships give out full scholarships but are restricted by the number of athletes who can be on scholarships. For example, on a fully funded NCAA Division 1 women’s volleyball team there are 12 full scholarships available. These 12 scholarships cannot be divided up and must be given out on an annual basis as full scholarships.

Equivalency sports have a certain number of scholarships that are usually divided up between athletes. Thus if you are an equivalency sport you are less likely to get a full scholarship than if you play a head count sport. However, your talent level is an important factor and there are many athletes playing equivalency sports on full scholarships. For a fully funded NCAA Division 1 women’s soccer team, 14 scholarships are available for 20 or more players. The coaches must decide how to use the scholarships they have each year and how to divide them up between players. Coaches often have players come in with the opportunity to raise their scholarship each year based on performance. It should also be noted that academic and international scholarships can be used in combination with athletic scholarships to help with the costs.
