ACE Football Academy – US Scholarships

Advanced Coaching & Education provides a unique opportunity for students to pursue
their passion for football while obtaining an academic degree from a US college. The United States is one of the most popular destinations for international students seeking scholarships to study abroad. The number of international scholarships has increased a love over the years as US universities prioritise internationalisation.

Football scholarships are a great way to combine your passion for the sport with academic study. ACE can help you navigate the strict application process for US scholarships. With access to GPS tracking technology and professional insight into what US coaches are looking for, Advanced Coaching & Education can help make your application stand out. Additionally, we offer support with the application process, including completing player profiles and writing a personal statement, as well as guidance for interviews with US coaches and help navigating offers and acceptances.

Studying and playing internationally gives students a unique experience that sets them apart from their competitors when looking for careers in sport. Advanced Coaching & Education offers an accessible, personalised US scholarship application package tailored to each student.

“My son started at ACE Football Academy in September 2022. At school he was always shy and struggled to make friends. The staff and students at ACE have really helped him with his confidence and he now has a lovely circle of friends and is even hoping to continue there for University.”

“After visiting many Football Academy’s in the local area ACE Football Academy stood out beyond measure. From our first meeting with Paul it was obvious that he really cared about each student and their future. Thanks to Paul and all the staff at ACE football academy, my son is now currently at University studying sport psychology and is on course to gain a 1st.”

“ACE Football Academy has been great for my son! At school he always struggled with work and exams and didn’t leave with very good GCSE’s. During his time at the academy he has grown in confidence and is getting distinctions in all his work. He once was a boy who didn’t want to go to school but now he is keen to get out the door and to work and training!”
