Ernie Els and Athletes-USA, LLC. partner to place international student-athletes into American universities through sports scholarships.
Jupiter, FL. (August 1st, 2017) – Ernie Els has partnered with reputable scholarship agency, Athletes- USA to recruit worldwide student-athletes from various sports into American universities within the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. Founded in 2008, Athletes-USA is comprised of former college athletes, coaches and scouts working together to market and manage scholarships to some of the world’s best known universities. With their network of over 20,000 American college coaches Athletes-USA has helped to deliver scholarships to over 54 countries globally and growing.
“I am delighted to partner with Athletes-USA. As many know, I’m very passionate about cultivating new talents and helping young players get to the next level,” said four-time Major Champion Ernie Els.
He added: “The Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation was founded in 1999 specifically for this purpose; to produce successful young leaders and to help develop them to their fullest potential. But scholarships to universities aren’t as common as they are in America. This is where Athletes-USA steps in. They take a look at you, your talent, your grades, and the overall picture to match and place you into the best university. I think that this is a great opportunity for young junior golfers and all student-athletes who are looking to come to America and attend university on scholarship. This is a game-changer for anyone looking to go further.”

College Football Recruiting Model Updates
By: Eva Melton
Effective August 1st 2017, prospective athletes will encounter a new recruiting model when applying for college football scholarships. The new recruiting model aims to promote a smoother flow within the recruiting process for athletes and coaches.
Recruiting is by far one of the most competitive aspects in college athletics for all divisions. A quality recruiting class can be the difference in a program’s success and failure.
In all sports, young athletes grow up idolising their heroes, hoping one day they will be able to reach the same heights.
But becoming a pro means taking your chance, the same chance that Woods, Nicklaus, Spieth and 65% of all PGA Tour players take: the US college system.
We are offering six young golfers the chance to win full scholarships to colleges in the US to help them start achieving their dream.
2016 has ended with its ups and downs and now we enter a new year that brings with it the traditional New Year resolutions.
This traditional list of resolutions may come with a bad connotation because by the end of the year many of us have forgotten about them and neglected our goals. However, the beginning of a new year is always a good time to reflect on the past and make a list of things that we’d like to change or achieve.
Merry Christmas From All of us Here at Athletes USA!
We are happy to have welcomed so many athletes to our family this year.
We have been growing and now we are bigger and better, and continue to be inspired by all those amazing athletes that want to follow their dreams by studying in the US.
We hope you all have a lovely time wherever you are in the world and may you holidays be truly wonderful, magical and filled with joy!
