American Scholarships Going to Foreign Competitors
As a high school senior who has finally chosen a college, I've spent a lot of time on the computer looking at which schools may be a good fit and which ones I cannot afford. While I searched school after school, looking for somewhere I could play collegiate tennis, I couldn't help but notice the large amount of foreign athletes on the highest and lowest competitive levels. They are a dominating force in American collegiate tennis and they consume a large portion of scholarships that may otherwise be given to American students. I became even more curious about this subject when I saw that Seattle University's tennis program does not allow scholarships to foreign students. I couldn't stop from wondering if they should be allowed this money or not.
College coaches would be forced to hurt their school’s chances of success and conference titles if they did not recruit and give scholarships to the best possible players they can get.
