Sporting Merit and Academic Merit

Scholarships for sporting merit (Athletic Scholarships) are awarded to those who demonstrate sporting skills that can help the college team achieve the goals set by the coach and his staff. Therefore, only the first coach (Head Coach) With the help of his staff (Assistant Coaches), he can decide who and to what extent will receive a scholarship for sporting merit.
