The Keystone Education Group (Keystone) has announced the launch of Keystone Sports, a service designed to help recruit student-athletes to colleges in the United States and Canada. 

“We care about the futures of our students, and with Keystone Sports, we will be able to help a greater number of student-athletes in Europe pursue their sports and academic dreams in the United States,” said Erik Harrell, CEO of Keystone Education Group. 

Keystone Sports will benefit student-athletes from all over Europe as we match those students with colleges and universities in the US and Canada. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has become a reality for 6700 students with over 441 million in US scholarships. This could be you!

Don’t just take our word for it; here are a few students who experienced studying and playing in the US and what they say about it!

Hear from Keystone Sports students  

Marie Becker (Germany), Harvard University 

Marie Becker speaks of studying and playing for Harvard, "It was the best decision of my life to come here." Marie particularly mentions the new experiences, cultural differences turned opportunities, and how sports influenced her academic and post-study world. You can read more about her experience playing for the elite school here (German).

Charlotte Crisp (UK), Pearl River Community College & University of Montevallo

Charlotte Crisp matched with two colleges in the US via Keystone Sports agency (CSUSA): “Charlotte obtained a football scholarship which allowed her to attend university in the USA while studying towards a degree. During her four years, she attended two different US colleges playing football at both of them. We were able to catch up with Charlotte and talk to her about life as a female footballer and being an international student in the US. We talked in-depth about her passion for football, how she found the right school, and what the challenges and obstacles were while studying abroad. Regardless of the sport you play, Charlotte has some great advice for any potential student-athletes!

Laia Coma (Spain), Limestone College 
Laia Coma swam her way to the US.
When discussing the process she said, "At first, I wanted to go to Australia, but then my parents and I found Keystone Sports [AGM Education] and started to learn how it worked... they helped me a lot, both with the exams and all the papers, scholarships, visas, choosing the university, and the whole process. They made it so much easier."
