Girl’s wrestling is one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States due to the determination of female wrestlers around the country.
Despite the many obstacles that female wrestlers face, they have continued to persevere, grow the sport, and break societal norms.
This scholarship seeks to empower girls and encourage them to continue breaking barriers in wrestling and in society in general.
Any female high school or undergraduate student with a 3.0 GPA or higher, non-profit or volunteering experience, and at least two years of high school wrestling experience may apply for this scholarship.

We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
