For students from under-resourced communities, attending college on an athletic scholarship may be their only opportunity to further their education and unleash their true potential.
A college degree provides a reliable pathway towards upward mobility. And, the good news is that colleges are earmarking more funding for athletic scholarships than ever before – from $2.5 million in the 1990s to over $3 billion today.
Yet, every year almost one million high school student-athletes, including almost one in two student-athletes in underserved school districts, are academically ineligible to accept college athletic scholarships.
Honest Nation, Honest Game’s nonprofit arm, is working to level the playing field so that every student has a fair and equitable opportunity to attend college. Honest Nation achieves this mission through virtual tracking of academic eligibility in real-time to help students own their path to play college sports.
The CARE® (College Athletic Report on Eligibility) serves as a navigation system for college academic eligibility, providing students and their parents custom step-by-step guidance for meeting and maintaining NCAA and NAIA academic requirements.
