Traveling is a wonderful self-development tool for all athletes.

While training harder and studying film is indispensable to excelling in athletics, travel can provide the perspective and inner equilibrium that helps you take your life and relationship with athletics to the next level.

By extricating you from the values of your own culture, travel exposes you to new modalities of living and engaging with the world and your sport.

Along the journey, you develop a more nuanced and balanced understanding of the human experience. Often, you come away with a greater sense of the interconnectedness of all humans and newfound gratitude for what you have. Plus, you have a great time in the process.

The Joey Cheek Traveling Athletes Scholarship is designed to support an athlete who wants to explore the world outside of the United States. The scholarship is open to undergraduate athletes who are currently studying abroad or who plan to study abroad in the next year. 

Please be advised, you must be enrolled in a US institution and must be studying abroad under one of their programs to be eligible. 

Applicants will need to write an essay on how they plan to use travel to develop themselves as people and as athletes.
