Collegiate athletics can provide invaluable connections that positively impact the trajectory of a student athlete's future.
As former collegiate athletes, the Rushing family would like to support other varsity athletes that are making a difference on their team but aren’t always monetarily recognized. These are the hard-working “glue guys/girls” that help make everyone else around them better by doing the little things that might go unnoticed. The Silverback Scholarship will be awarded to one male and one female college athlete with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
In order to apply, you must be a junior undergraduate collegiate athlete, graduating in 2023. Similar to a silverback gorilla, you should exemplify grit, determination, and a passion to lead your teammates.
To apply, write about your experience in varsity collegiate athletics, how you exemplify leadership in and outside of the game, and how you represent the qualities of a “glue guy/girl.”
