While I was in high school and college I took full advantage of scholarship opportunities. I came from a single parent home and I knew getting all the money I needed to offset the cost of college would be important for my attendance to college and a big help to my mother. While others may argue that a scholarship is not free money because you have to work hard to get one by creating an essay, getting letters of recommendations etc. I believe its free money because doing a essay, getting letters of recommendation is what you have to do anyways….so why not get paid to do it!

The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes program honors high school athletes for demonstrating academic excellence as well as flexing their hearts on their sports team and in their communities. So, They are celebrating YOU — not just because you scored the winning touchdown or goal — but because you've used sports to become a strong leader and volunteer in your community.  So go get this FREE Money!
