Everyone deserves access to proper and adequate education, no matter their background.
Unfortunately, for many international student-athletes, there are fewer opportunities for them after high school since they do not qualify for financial aid, grants, or loan relief when applying for most schools in the United States.
International students bring with them culture, experience, and knowledge that high school and college campuses otherwise wouldn’t be exposed to. These students often come from challenging backgrounds and need financial assistance to help them continue their educational journey.
The Impact International Student-Athlete Scholarship is designed to help international student-athletes pursue their education without the financial burden. This scholarship will be awarded to international student-athletes in need of financial assistance who show an interest in helping others, having a high GPA, and sharing their story.
To apply, please write about how your experiences have shaped you, how you can make an impact on others, and what this scholarship means to you.
