Meet the founder

Athletes to America was founded by Lauren Bourne, a runner from the UK. She attended an NCAA D11 University in North Carolina on a full-ride track and cross country scholarship in 2014.


“I can’t emphasise enough how incredible my time in the States was. I formed lifelong friendships, traveled up and down the east coast with my team, and trained and was treated like a professional athlete, all whilst studying and working towards my Bachelor’s Degree.


Those years were the most exciting of my life and as cliché as it sounds, if I could do it all over again, I would grab the opportunity with both hands!


Going to the USA had always been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. When I was 18 and hoping to pursue my athletic career in the States, I was shocked at the cost of UK agency fees, and overwhelmed at the prospect of figuring out the US school system on my own, which saw the creation of Athletes to America and the scholarship program.”

Athletes to America gives you the head start to college enrolment without breaking the bank.
