The martial arts can help young people develop important skills, such as confidence, discipline, integrity, and strength.
Unfortunately, martial arts doesn’t get the same level of collegiate support as other sports such as football, soccer, and basketball. As a result, there are too few opportunities and resources for students interested in martial arts.
This scholarship aims to support students who demonstrate a commitment to both martial arts and academic success.
Any high school or undergraduate student who practices martial arts and has a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship. However, low-income and/or minority students are preferred.
To apply, tell us what lessons martial arts have taught you that you have applied to your life or to school.
What lessons from martial arts have you learned that you have been able to apply to your life or academics?
The application deadline is Apr 16, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 15, 2022. 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.
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.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
