DeAmontay Buckley was a beloved brother, uncle, son and friend. He struggled with mental health and passed away too soon.

Mental health struggles are often stigmatized in society despite being a common experience, with 30.6% of adults aged 18 to 25 having a mental, emotional, or behavioral issue each year. As a result, 25.5% of adults in this age group report having considered suicide and 8.9% of high school students have attempted suicide in the last year.

This scholarship aims to raise awareness of mental illness by supporting minority athletes who have overcome adversity in life.

Any BIPOC athlete who is a high school senior or a two or four-year undergraduate student may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself and how you have overcome adversity in your life.
