The #1 book on sports scholarships, completely updated and revised! $1 billion of athletic scholarships are awarded each year But student-athletes who aren't big-time recruits miss out on tens of thousands of dollars of financial aid available to them. The problem is students and parents don't know where the money is or how to get it. Discover the secrets to getting a sports scholarship Over seventeen hundred colleges offer athletic programs. Over 500,000 athletes participate in sports in the nation's college programs. But less than 1% (about 4,000) of them get Division I, full-ride financial aid grants. The truth is: 80% of all college athletic opportunities are located outside Division I! But to seize those opportunities, you must take control of your own recruiting process—recruiting, research and homework, exposure and promotion, and negotiating—all in the environment of a high-stakes contest where only the opposition knows the rules. This book will give you the edge. If you aren't one of the 4,000, but are athletically and academically qualified to participate in college sports, The Sports Scholarships Insider's Guide will lead you step by step through the twists, turns, and all too often unpleasant surprises to achieve your ultimate goal of a roster position and financial aid for your athletic ability. "Practical, step-by-step information in a clear and conversational manner." School Library Journal Dion Wheeler, former coach and recruiting consultant, gives students and their parents the inside edge to not only find great scholarships, but get the best offer no matter what their skill level.

Once again in 2006 the cost to attend college was double the inflation rate, according to the report "Trends in College Pricing 2006". The average rate of tuition at four-year private colleges was about $21,235; four-year public universities average $5,491. Tuition costs, of course, are just the beginning now add room and board, the cost of attending a private college is $29,026 per year on average, and $12,127 at four-year public universities. Take a look at IVY league universities such as Princeton and the total fees will climb to nearly $37,000. An 8% college inflation rate means that the cost of college doubles every nine years. For a baby born today, this means that college costs will be more than three times current rates when the child is ready for college. The average debt for graduating college seniors who borrow to finance their undergraduate degree is just under $20,000. But there is good news. There is more financial aid available than ever before over $134 billion. And, despite all of these college cost increases, a college education remains an affordable choice for most families. Armed with the information detailed in this comprehensive book you will be privy to over 2,200 programs that offer scholarships, internships, or loans to more than 1.7 million students each year.

State-funded by Nevada's portion of the lawsuit settlement against national tobacco companies. Or Patrick Kerr Skateboard Scholarship One $5,000 and three $1,000 scholarships to students who promote skateboarding. Created by a Philadelphia mother after her 15-year-old son was killed while skateboarding. Are you tall ?

Today's parents need a guide to colleges and universities where their children can find a strong Catholic presence on campus. In these days, with so many young people falling away from the practice of their faith during college, it is vital for them to find support for their faith during the college years. College is a time of growing and exploring intellectually and experientially. With a strong Catholic presence on campus, students can critically examine and deepen their faith. Catholicism has much to offer especially communion with God, who is love and mercy and the source of all hope, community, wisdom, and a stabilizing guide in life. As both a practicing Catholic and professional college planner, Katherine O'Brien MA CCPS, founder of Celtic College Consultants, has compiled a college guide to meet the needs of practicing Catholics. In Every Catholic's Guide to College she documents the American colleges and universities that have certain supports for Catholic student life on their campus. The Guide includes detailed information about the best US colleges and universities for practicing Catholics, based on the availability of strong support for living and growing in faith on campus. Support includes the presence of a top ranked Newman Center or a Catholic dorm or FOCUS or St. Paul's outreach Catholic missionaries or being listed in the Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College. Each college's entry includes basic admissions criteria and financial aid information in addition to information on the academic programs offered and the research centers and institutes associated with the university. Making the Guide easy to use, the colleges and universities are listed in alphabetical order. An index listing the schools by state and another, longer index listing the schools by sport and division (NCAA Division 1, 2, 3, or NAIA) are located at the back of the book. For each institution, the following information is listed: -Address, website, phone number -Number of undergraduate students, percentage male and female -In-state and Out-of-state costs, and % of financial need met, on average, for undergraduates -Athletic Division -Middle 50% range of SAT and ACT scores. If the CLT is accepted, it is noted. -The kinds of degrees, colleges within the universities, undergraduate majors (for most schools), and research centers and institutes hosted by the institution While Every Catholic's Guide to College gives fairly complete information for hopeful undergraduates, aspiring graduate students will also benefit from using the Guide. Both undergraduate and graduate applicants interested in research and/or special topics within their field of study will be significantly aided by the inclusion of lists of research centers and institutes hosted by the colleges and universities. The Guide will serve Catholic families as a great starting point as they search for the best colleges for their children. What People Are Saying about Every Catholic's Guide to College "College should be a time of deepening spiritual and intellectual engagement with one's Catholic faith, yet studies tell us that more Catholics in the U.S. lose their faith during college than at any other time. Katherine O'Brien's new guidebook couldn't come at a better time. "Every Catholic's Guide to Colleges" provides the comprehensive information Catholic students and their parents need to make an informed decision about where to prepare young Catholics for fruitful lives in this world -- and the next." Christopher Currie Director of Institutional Advancement St. Jerome Academy Hyattsville, MD "Katherine, I am so grateful that you have done this work. I hope that it blesses many people discerning college." Fr. Mike Schmitz Chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministries University of Minnesota, Duluth & Director of the Office of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Duluth
