“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor” - Vince Lombardi. 

Sean Kelly was a student-athlete and a lifelong believer in continuing education. Student-athletes who excel in athletics and academics demonstrate hard work and dedication. 

Like Sean, they’re committed to being their best version on and off the field. Unfortunately, in January 2022, Sean passed away at the age of 34 from a severe traumatic brain injury. 

The Sean Kelly Memorial Scholarship aims to honor Sean by supporting high school seniors from low income families who are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree.

First-generation high school senior athletes with a 3.5 GPA may apply.
