The Jock vonStrapp Athletic Scholarship

At last, a new College Scholarship for teens about to go to college! In the past, the Hogan Award for Athletics demanded a Level 8 or higher Body Skill rating -- and paid out only $ 750.

However, the new Jock vonStrapp Athletic Scholarship demands only a Level 2 in Body Skill rating -- and pays out a whopping $ 4,000 simoleans. This is the highest-valued college scholarship ever!!

What this means for your college-bound Sim:
1. Dorm living may be optional even in his/her freshman year - you could probably afford your own pad, and
2. Your Sim could start their own sorority or fraternity house as early as their freshman year, or
3. The 50-80 hours normally needed to perform Cafeteria or other college jobs just to make ends meet could be optional, and finally,
4. Your Sim, not already having an 8+ in Body, could actually have an incentive to visit the Campus Gym regularly.

Make sure you place both package files for this mod in your Downloads folder, as they are both in the rar file below.......

Thanks to the folks at SimPE and a special thank you to Smonaff, who answered my inquiries regarding some of the files I'd need to ammend to make the monetary and skill requirement changes, text consistencies, and Memory file changes it took to make this Modification possible for the very first time.

Comments and thank-you's are always read with appreciation!

How about Scholarships that revolve around Talent Badges? Perhaps a Robotics themed one?
I can imagine it now.

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

Thanks for creating this mod. But when I use it, I get a "bad gosub tree number" error. I guess something in my game that's conflicting, but exactly what I have no idea. I've tried backing up my data and reinstalling the game, but that doesn't work. Oh well.

Over 7,000 people are enjoying this mod, and so far none has reported this.
You probably have something else that you've downloaded that's causing your error code.

Just a friendly suggestion:
I think this download would be even better if it put the 4,000 simoleons on the 8 skill-point scholarship. It makes it more worthwhile and less feeling like a cheat. xP
