BTL Industries is all about strengthening and empowering individuals based on the values of teamwork, trust, and building others up.
Student-athletes face unique challenges as they pursue their education, balancing the responsibilities of homework and studying with practices, training, and games for their sport. High tuition is just one more source of stress that many student-athletes have to deal with.
BTL has collaborated with professional basketball player Andre Drummond to ease the burden of tuition for five student-athletes who are graduating high school or attending college.
Any low-income high school junior or senior who’s a varsity athlete or any current undergraduate students who are athletes on a college team may apply for this scholarship. Students who only play intramural or club sports are not eligible.
To apply, please submit a short 2-5 minute video sharing your personal background, your aspirations, and how this scholarship would help you on your journey. Please also share what confidence in your sport means to you and any relevant clips of you playing your sport.
The application deadline is Feb 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 28, 2022.
The scholarship award is $15,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Feb 28, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
