Young women build self-confidence through participation in sports. Among senior businesswomen in the C-Suite today, 94% played sports and over half played at the university level. Often, young women who are advancing their education while participating in sports are faced with financial constraints that limit their opportunity to continue pursuing sports as long as they’d like. Research shows that young women who participate in sports for a longer time have more leadership opportunities in their careers.
We recognize that athletics can positively affect the personal development of a young woman, encouraging goal-setting, leadership, and teamwork. By creating a scholarship to honor female athletes who have overcome adversity, we hope to alleviate one of the personal obstacles that young women face when pursuing academics and athletics simultaneously.
