Who is this Scholarship For?
The Fringe Pursuits Athletic Scholarship is for students who excel at sports and while maintain a proven academic track record. This scholarship is our way to give back to our readers, their families, and our community. While our website focuses on a community of sports athletes and enthusiasts we know that education and training programs are a way to strengthen communities, achieve our goals, and improve the world for all of us.
More importantly, we know that sports and outdoor activities are not only physically demanding but also mentally demanding. Over the last decade, the world has seen just how much commitment and mental power is involved in high-level competitive sports.
It is because we know that a good education involves physical fitness as well, we want to support our students (high school, undergraduate, or postgraduate) on their road to pursuing their goals.
Being a student-athlete is difficult. In addition to working hard to be at the top of your game physically, you are also working to rise to the head of the class mentally. We at FringePursuits.com have made it our goal to help a student-athlete succeed in all their goals with the help of $1,000 from us to make their pursuits easier to attain.
We know you like a challenge.
