Information and Guidelines
The GRACEDBYGRIT foundation Scholarship Fund is intended to support female athletes pursuing collegiate sports. 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 student-athletes who’ve overcome adversity, we hope to alleviate one of the personal obstacles that young women face when pursuing academics and athletics simultaneously.
