    HPU does not give 'full rides' so to speak. They give tuition based scholarships of either 80% or 100% depending on tryout results. Tuition for a full year at HPU runs close to 15K.....then you have to pay for housing, meals, books, transporation etc......that can cost about 17K a year depending on the lifestyle you live and how much you want to eat!!! It is a GREAT school.

    San Diego State University!! I don't know if they do scholarships, but if you make the team they pay for your books. I also do know they go to the College UCA Nationals. They have done amazing there. They were 2009 national champs and 5th this year due to an injury. :)

    NC State All Girl has placed in the top 5 at NCA Nationals for the past three years as well as Cheersport Nationals. The team is a club team, so you're alotted extra time to be in sororities and school affiliated clubs instead of working on gameday material. It's definitely more of an "Allstar feel," if that's what you're into. The school is also very well know (especially if you want to be an engineering, design, or textile major). www.ncstateall-girlcheerleading.com is their website. You can also call Kelly Smith, the owner for Cheer Extreme Raleigh, for more information.

    HPU doesn't even give 80% or 100% scholrships anymore... Cheer scholarships are all based on your FAFSA now if you want to go on percentage then what I got this year would be equvilant to about 47% so don't be dependent on those amounts if thats where you want to go.

    That's too bad they stopped the 80% and 100% scholarships..........but still, 47% is fantastic!!!!

    This is a great resource, thank you! It would be WONDERFUL if there were a "search engine" on it that would allow you to select "competitive", "coed", and "scholarship" and generate a list with all 3 of those choices. That would allow our search for a school to be so much quicker!! Any chance that is in the future plans?

    It would also be nice if it was more conclusive. What they have on there is by no means all of the colleges that compete, or even all of the colleges that compete at NCA and UCA. It's a good place to start, but It's always best to do your own research.
