Check out these scholarships for student athletes (and related to athletics) and get paid to play in college.

Hicks scholarship for demonstrating superior educational achievement, outstanding leadership, and a true love of the game. This winner will receive an additional $5000 award (for a total of $25,000). This year’s 20 winners will join the program’s four previous classes of Foot Locker Scholar Athletes, which will result in 120 total scholarship recipients since the program’s inception in 2011.
