Track and Field Scholarships

Millions of Scholarships, personalized results

 and get matched to scholarships that are personalized for you.

While many schools may combine their sports scholarships for cross country with track and field, there’s definitely a difference in the two types of athletes. Track and field has a higher focus on quick sprinters, long and high jumpers, and impressive javelin and shot-put throwers. Both male and female athletes may be able to find track scholarships to help them pay for college tuition. Keep in mind that competitive NCAA track and field awards also require students to maintain a minimum GPA. Be sure to keep your options open for other scholarships that look at your performance on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. Don’t let money for college be another hurdle in your way.
