wHAT IS A SCHOLARSHIP TIMELINE?
Everyone’s recruitment moves at a different pace, so overnight results although very much possible for some athletes, as a whole are an unrealistic expectation for anyone pursuing an athletic scholarship. Our scholarship timeline offers athletes a look at our step-by-step process that we take all of our student-athletes through when securing athletic and academic scholarships.
1 | Evaluation
Initial recruitment assessment with NextUpRecruitment staff going through your academics, athletic history, and game film. Information will be provided on the recruitment process, scholarships in the USA, what to expect throughout your time with us and what we believe your current level to be.
2 | Onboarding
Fill out all required recruitment forms and assign a personal recruitment coach to handle your recruitment and offer guidance throughout your time with us. Once the onboarding process is complete NextUpRecruitment can begin building your recruitment profile in preparation for contact.
3 | Targeting
Emails and calls made to qualifying colleges and universities based on your athletic and academic needs. This is completely tailored towards what is right for your recruitment in order to maximise your college scholarship opportunities. We then begin to make shortlists on schools or regions we believe we should target.
