Highly talented athletes from Kenya and Nigeria have the opportunity to study at prestigious American universities with full scholarships and financial support.
Problems in the countries
The average monthly income in Nigeria is €50. The cost of living in Nigeria for rent, food and mobility, for example, is around €30 per month. In comparison: The cost of the US visa and registration with the NCAA is about €1000. The cost for the outbound flight to the USA is about 2000 €.
In total, the application costs for a stay in the USA add up to approximately €5,000, which is equivalent to about 250 monthly salaries. This is not affordable for an average family in Nigeria.
We recognize that financial barriers often prevent young talent from developing countries from reaching their full potential. That’s why we take over the placement fees for these athletes in the value of 6000€ to 10,000€, which normally have to be paid by the athletes themselves.
This opens up an opportunity for athletes that would not otherwise be available to them.
By underwriting the cost of our labor and investing in developing countries, we give talented young people access to better education and training opportunities without paying a dime.
Because that’s what Scholarbook is, too: For us, it is important not only to measure our success by numbers, data and facts, but also to make a concrete contribution to corporate social responsibility.
Our way of working shows that a company should not only focus on profit maximization, but also bear a responsibility for society. We are proud to support athletes and give them a better future.
