Did you know that fencing has had a presence in universities across the world for at least 500 years? This long-standing history has helped pave the way for competitive fencing at schools across America. Although it’s not as popular as some other sports, traditional fencing teams at the collegiate level do offer some competitive scholarships. In fact, this unique skill can help fencers not only gain scholarship dollars — but also admittance to some top universities. If you plan to continue fencing in college, you can look at playing for clubs or intramural teams and look into scholarship opportunities from organizations, such as the United States Associate of Collegiate Fencing Clubs (USACFC) or the Regional Youth Circuit program.
