Scholarship Terms & Conditions
The scholarship program is in place to have student managers, interns, graduate assistants, administrators, coaches, and young professionals within an intercollegiate or professional athletics program to read and reflect on a pre-selected article/book/video. The students or young professionals will be given access to review the material sent and respond professionally in the form of a scholarship essay application.
Purpose of the Scholarship
To award funding for students/young professionals who work or are affiliated with an athletic program, professional or intercollegiate. If students have other scholarships in place that will cover the costs of school, any additional funding provided by Uncommon Sports Group (USG) will be sent in the form of a check to the student with school, personal, spiritual, or professional related funding being the intent of its use. In the instance that a non-student is selected, funds will be sent directly to the recipient.
When available, USG will utilize a Scholarship Review Committee composed of individuals from the athletic realm to independently review finalist applications as selected by the USG Director of Development. The Review Committee will send their ranked finalist and USG will utilize a point system to determine the scholarship recipients. In the event that a Review Committee is not available, the Director of Development will have the USG CEO serve in place of the Review Committee. The above process will still apply to selecting the scholarship recipients.
Funding will vary based on sponsorship participation. The first place scholarship recipient will receive the largest amount in scholarship funding, followed by second place, followed by third place, followed by eighteen honorable mentions. In most cases, there will be twenty-one applicants selected for funding, however if additional funding is available, USG reserves the right to award more scholarships.
Awarding of Funds
USG will send all funding directly to the recipient's school and the school will apply the funding to the student’s account. In the event that no further funding can be applied to the student's account or we have deemed it necessary to be used for other purposes, USG will send a check with the remaining funding to the recipient.
