In the pursuit of higher education, the financial landscape can often resemble a hurdle race. Yet, amidst this labyrinth of financial challenges, opportunities like the Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program stand as beacons of hope. Applying for scholarships is akin to lacing up for a competition—one where determination, skill, and a touch of strategy can pave the way to victory.
The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program, specifically tailored for those balancing academic pursuits with athletic excellence, is a testament to the recognition of multidimensional achievements. But how does one step onto this track of opportunity?
Every year, Foot Locker, Inc. employees who exhibit exceptional personal passion at work, in the classroom, and in their communities are given a $5,000 one-year scholarship by the Foot Locker Foundation. In addition, the Ken C. Hicks Scholarship, named for the former chairman and CEO, will award a $5,000 bonus to one winner, making a total of $10,000.
The Foot Locker Foundation wants to support you in realizing your professional goals, whether you’re a team member of Foot Locker heading off to college in the fall, seeking a graduate degree, applying for a certificate program, or returning to school to finish your education!
