We call it Game Changer for good reason.

The scholarships we help secure really do ‘change the game’ by empowering talented young Aussies to use their athletic ability as the vehicle to largely fund their tertiary education and create a great foundation for the future. The average scholarship package we secured for our Fall 2020 athletes was $21,000 USD. This equates to an eye-watering $84,000 USD in funding over the fours years of their degree program!

"I received interest from over 40 college soccer programs and had several scholarship offers. The team at CARYS really helped weigh up my options and select the best fit not only athletically but also educationally and socially. I ended up accepting a great combined athletic and academic scholarship package at a top NAIA DI college and can't wait to get started later this year"

"I was promoted to all NCAA college soccer programs and ended up being offered a full-ride to study and compete at Alabama State University in the NCAA DI. A full-ride basically means my whole education will be fully funded. I can't wait to start my college journey and am already in contact with my new teammates before heading over later in the year."
