Who We Are

“Passion is what makes life interesting, what ignites our soul, fuels our love and carries our friendships, stimulates our intellect, and pushes our limits.” Pat Tillman

At the Junior Champions Foundation, we understand the importance of pursuing one’s passions in spite of obstacles. We are committed to helping athletes without means develop their passions to their full potential. 

Scholarship Applications

Are you a dedicated junior athlete interested in taking your talent to the next level? Does a sports academy experience seem out of reach due to financial constraints? The Junior Champions Foundation may be able to help you. We fund a limited number of full and partial scholarships at our partner sports academies. Scholarships are available to students who demonstrate financial need in addition to academic and athletic merit. Students applying to semester and/or full-year programs are encouraged to apply. You can apply online or contact us for more information. 

Qualified Partner Academies

We want to ensure that the academies to which our scholarship candidates apply are as committed to excellence and the success of the athlete as we are. Therefore, we require that academies who wish to recommend a student for a scholarship apply to be one of our qualified partners. The application can be found here.
