We started OXB, a sweatproof jewelry brand, for the fitness community. In the 18 months since founding OXB, founders Laura and Maggie have grown from just two to a team. Today the team consists of 6 women + a diverse ambassador group who are leaders in their own arenas, including fitness instructors, professional athletes, Olympians, activists, and entrepreneurs.
We regularly draw on our own experiences as athletes in all aspects of our business. We believe in investing in you, a student athlete, because you’re learning the challenges of balancing rigorous and competing schedules, being a good teammate, and planning for the future. These skills will set you up to be a leader in your workplace, regardless of your field of study.
This scholarship is broadly open to any college athlete. Because everything at OXB is a #teamsport, we’d love to learn about your favorite team building moments and/or strategies. This is an exercise in storytelling — get creative!
What are the most creative and effective team building approaches you’ve taken as a student-athlete? What effect have they had on your team? How has this been important in your athletic journey?

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.
