US Scholarship


Ayr United Football Academy is in partnership with TheScholarshipCo whose programme enables Academy players the opportunity to pursue college scholarships in the United States where they can continue in their football development while simultaneously furthering their academic prospects by earning a recognised degree after leaving the Academy. and Ayr United Football Academy are pleased to announce that they have agreed a formal partnership which offers Academy players an opportunity to pursue university and college scholarships in the United States.

The relationship came about as a result of the Academy recognising that only a small percentage of its young players are likely to be offered a professional contract with Ayr United Football Club and from its desire to ensure that its players have an opportunity to continue to pursue their career in football. program offers an extremely attractive alternative career path that allows talented footballers the exclusive opportunity to realise their academic and sporting ambitions simultaneously.

Co-Director and TheScholarshipCo founder Gordon Inglis, himself a former AUFC youth player and All American student athlete at Lindenwood University is excited at the prospect of working with the AUFA.

“Over the years we have placed some very exciting prospects from the Academy that have gone on to be very successful in the US collegiate system. We continue to be impressed with the quality of players coming through the Academy and very much look forward to working in partnership with AUFA in facilitating young footballers with opportunities after Academy football. By pursuing an American Scholarship these players will continue their football development in the USA, while furthering their educational qualifications by earning a recognised degree”
