Weight Lifting Scholarship

20 March, 2012 (13:19) | Weight Lifting Scholarship | By: Carlo Evanson

Have you considered a weight lifting scholarship? With high school coming to an end, many students begin to think about their future and what direction they want to attend in the next phase of their life. 

Some students go on to college to study in a program that has always resonated with them, such as history, nursing, or teaching. Others are fortunate enough to earn scholarships based on good grades received in high school and meeting all the requirements of the scholarship offered.

Athletic scholarships are also offered to some students coming out of high school, but this is not as common because being at the top of your class athletically and being offered a scholarship to a Division 1 school is exceptionally difficult.

One of the most dedicated and committed activities a student can excel in is weightlifting. Students who participate in weightlifting are always pushing themselves for better. Thus, students who want to pursue weight lifting at the next level can look at colleges that offer a weight lifting scholarship or, at the very least, weight lifting clubs.

Some colleges that offer premier weight lifting clubs are Lindenwood University, Northern Michigan University and Fairleigh Dickinson University. It is here where you can improve upon your bench press, squat, and dead lift, with result-driven help from coaches who are dedicated to your success.

One school that stands out especially is the USA Weightlifting Center for High Performance at LSU Shreveport. They offer a weightlifting scholarship to select students who meet their application requirements and really demonstrate a drive to succeed.

It’s important to look around at other colleges as well, though, who might offer a scholarship for you. They tend to pop up from time to time, so peruse college websites near you to see whether they offer a weight lifting scholarship you can take advantage of to reduce the cost of tuition and room and board.
