My name is Rufus Brown and I’m the Chairman of the NFLPA Scholarship committee. I want to begin by thanking you for your interest in the Professional Athletes Foundation scholarship application. The continual investment in our youth is the backbone for continued ingenuity for our future and the foundation for our inspiring leader to take us into the next century.
Senior student and coaches are encouraged to apply
This year, we are administering the format of the application and submission a little different. We are migrating to an online platform ( links to form at bottom of the email) as a way to capture applicants responses quicker and maintain a smoother chain of custody for support documents.
The PAF Student Scholarship is designed for high school athletes with intentions to attend a 2-year or 4-year college or university. The scholarship rewards high school athletes for their non-athletic achievements and assist them in achieving their academic career goals.
Pertinent information to maintain.
– All applications and coach’s nomination packages must be signed, certified and returned by Friday, February 26, 2021
– Packages and support documents shall be uploaded and attached with each application and coach’s nomination packages.
– Student applications must be certified by the applicant and a school counselor. In addition, all coaches must certify their perceptive nomination package.
