Women's Sports Museum Accepting Scholarship Applications



Staying true to its mission to inspire girls through the power of sport, the Women’s Sports Museum is accepting applications now through September 14 for its 2018-19 Outstanding Female Athlete Scholarship. Two winners will be contacted by October 5, will be invited to attend and will be announced at the Women’s Sports Museum Gala on October 19 to receive a $2,000 college scholarship. To be considered for the Outstanding Female Athlete Scholarship, applicants must be a current high school senior in Sarasota, Manatee or Charlotte County and participate in at least one sport. Students are required to submit by deadline an application, essay and coach recommendation letter.  Submissions will be evaluated based on a range of factors, including student essay, athletic ability, demonstrated leadership and strength of character. This is the second year that the Women’s Sports Museum has offered the scholarship program. Last year, a total of $2,000 was awarded to two local athletes.
