Fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball players have many opportunities to earn money for college. Playing for either a high school team or a local league can not only help you get spotted by college recruiters and scouts, but it also opens up the doors to numerous softball scholarships. Outside organizations, like the NCAA, offer scholarship awards to college softball athletes who can impress on the field and in the classroom. In fact, several colleges, alumni associations, and private scholarship funds look beyond just athletic talent and include a student’s academic achievement, volunteer and community service, financial need, and other character factors to help award college dollars to softball players. There’s no need to wait for the good pitches here — apply to as many of these softball scholarships as you can!
