Soccerloco’s National Scholarship Program is an essay-based scholarship that was created by Soccerloco and the American Business Women’s Association in order to support female athletes in achieving a college education. ABWA has been supporting women pursuing business-related careers and assisting them in getting an education, gaining leadership, reaching professionalism, and more. ABWA would like to give female students an advantage by giving them a little push and a little support in their education. They are working together with Soccerloco to assist female athletes and by helping them get a $2,000 Soccerloco’s National Scholarship towards their college education. Applicants must be a female student and currently attending an institution of higher education. Applicants need to submit an essay, their contact information, and a short personal biography by the deadline. The essay must be on the topic given and be written in 500 to 700 words. The personal biography must be in 150 words or less. This scholarships program is offered once a year and it opens in the beginning of March with the annual deadline usually towards the end of every December. Applicants are chosen based on their written work and the quality of their essay. The reason for this scholarship program is to help women move forward in their life and become future role models to the younger female generation. One student will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship to defray the cost of their college education. The lucky female athlete will be contacted by email and phone and will get funds towards books or tuition by also getting a nationwide notice.
