For the eighth consecutive year, the Foot Locker Foundation will be awarding 20 incoming college freshman with $20,000 in scholarship funding through the Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program. The funding is to pursue a 4-year college degree – not because they scored the most touchdowns or goals, but because sports have helped them grow into strong leaders at school and in their communities.
As a bonus, one of our 20 winners will be selected for the Ken C. Hicks scholarship for demonstrating superior educational achievement, outstanding leadership, and a true love of the game. This winner will receive an additional $5,000 award.
We’re searching for applicants who are strong on and off the field; students who have excellent records of community service, academics, and athletics. We’re searching for leaders and inspiring individuals!
Applicants for the scholar-athlete scholarship should have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA, have participated in a sports-related activity in their high school or community, and be college bound in the Fall.
The application consists of basic information like name, high school, sports played, test scores etc., as well as two 300-500 word essays and one non-family member recommendation. A second recommendation and supplements such as videos or photos are optional.
