Overcoming Gender Issues
It used to be that men received the majority of sports related scholarships. Women were often left out as it was rare to obtain a woman related scholarship in this field. However, we are happy to announce that times have changed. Since the introduction of Title IX the opportunities for women to receive an athletic scholarship have greatly increased. The Title IX prevents any sex discrimination when it comes to scholarships in activities such as sports.
