For the fifth consecutive year, Foot Locker will be awarding incoming college freshman with $20,000 in scholarship funding to pursue a 4-year college degree - not because they scored the most touchdowns or goals, but because sports have helped them grow into strong leaders at school and in their communities.
As a newly added bonus, one of our 20 winners will be selected for the Ken C. 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 100 total scholarship recipients since the program's inception in 2011. Applicants are evaluated based on whether they are Foot Locker Scholar Athlete material. The ideal candidates would be proactive, highly motivated, inspiring, charismatic, honest, trustworthy, genuine, strong and courageous. Additionally, promising applicants embody good sportsmanship, strong moral character, are passionate/committed to empowering his or her community, are confident and enthusiastic leaders, come from diverse backgrounds and display academic excellence.
Applications open October 1, 2015 and close December 17, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
