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.

The application deadline is Aug 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Aug 17, 2021.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 17, 2021. 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 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.
