    For the most you don't apply for atheletic scholarships. Coaches recruit players to play at their schools and the use fo shcolarships is an inducement to attend their school. Because there is limited amount of scholarships, everything is driven by the coaches.

    There are several publications available to find schools that offer scholarships. If you go to the individual school soccer websites there is usually information on applying and being recruited. Soccer has limited resources for recruiting compared to US football. ODP recognition is probably the best. Show case tournaments are also a great option. Most coaches have online email. Send a few and see what type of response you get.

    Assume you are interested in a "soccer scholarship"?

    It is rare that a player would get a soccer full scholarship. Usually only partial scholarships are given.

    Best bet is to get an academic scholarship AND the the partial soccer scholarship.

    Good luck in your search.
