UWANTGAME has reached over 1,000 student-athletes in its effort to assist them in reaching their potential in academics, athletics, and personal growth through the development of life and career skills. Through various events and mentorship opportunities, UWANTGAME has served the community as an enrichment program, for which participants are taught the value of building and connecting the powers of the mind, body and spirit on the playing field and in the game of life.
UWANTGAME has long recognized that participation in sports has enhanced leadership skills, academic aspirations, discipline, team work and interpersonal skills, self-confidence and has promoted the value of goal setting. In recognition of how these vital skills contribute to successful and productive community citizens, the organization aims to support the collegiate and academic aspirations of graduating high-school students with financial hardships that will not continue their sports endeavors through collegiate athletic scholarships.
Beginning in 2016, UWANTGAME began awarding scholarships to deserving, high school seniors to continue their academic journey. In 2017, two (2) scholarships will be awarded: one for a student-athlete and one for a student pursuing a degree and/or career in sports management. Scholarships will be awarded based on a point system and the top applicants in each category will receive one UWANTGAME Leaders in Sports Scholarship.
HOW IT WORKS
High school student athletes throughout the United States who meet the eligibility requirements may apply for one of the leadership and achievement-based scholarships.
Students will be recognized for their capacity to lead and serve, and their commitment to making an impact on their schools and communities in and out of sports.
