Maybe you’re determined to be the next Michael Phelps, or perhaps your goal is to make it onto your dream school’s swim team. Either way, there are plenty of college scholarships available to talented swimmers and divers. In a sport where tenths of a second can make all the difference, it’s no surprise that NCAA swimming scholarships are highly competitive. Just like it’s important to diversify your swimming skills by competing in more than one stroke, it’s also wise to look at outside organizations that can offer other swimming and diving scholarship opportunities based on talent, academic achievement, financial aid, and more. So, keep working to decrease your swimming time — and use this directory to decrease your scholarship search time.
