As a college student, I know how hard paying for college can be, that’s why it’s super important for me as a parent to instill in my children the importance of good grades and saving money for their college tuition! Since I’m so passionate about the importance of college, not only for me, but for my children as well, I wanted to share an awesome partnership between Foot Locker and DoSomething.org to offer 20 scholarships to 20 young athletes!
If you know a college-bound student who excels on the court/field and in the classroom you definitely want to check this out!
Getting your kids into college is only half the battle. Then you have to pay for it.
Foot Locker and DoSomething.org have partnered to offer 20 college scholarships to 20 amazing young student athletes. The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program honors students who demonstrate academic excellence and show their strength of character and devotion to their sports, as well as their communities. Students will be rewarded not because they scored the most touchdowns or ran the fastest mile, but because they have become strong leaders in the community, exemplifying sportsmanship both on and off the field. It is the award for flexing heart, not muscle.
Students can apply online or be nominated by teachers, coaches, friends and family by visiting www.dosomething.org/footlocker. Application closes on January 9, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
Applicants must be college-bound, participate in a sport and maintain a 3.0 GPA. Participants will be required to submit three essays and two recommendations. All applications will be reviewed by a panel of scholarship experts and celebrity judges.
Fastweb, a trusted scholarship and financial aid resource used by students to help find opportunities to pay for school, is supporting the scholarship program.
The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes program is a part of the Foot Locker Foundation, Inc., which is dedicated to providing monetary support for educational and sports programs across the country.
