The Savannah Sports Council aims to help reduce the cost of college tuition for six Chatham County 2020 high school student-athlete graduates through scholarship opportunities.
The purpose of the Scholar Athlete scholarship is to reward the achievements of student-athletes in their sport, but also in the classroom and the community.
There will be six total awards available: three for males and three for females. The top pick for male and female will each receive a $1,500 scholarship, and the two runners up will each receive a $500 scholarship.
The three finalists selected must be able to attend the Georgia Power Sports Awards on Oct. 2, 2019 at the Savannah Golf Club. The winner of each scholarship will be named and honored at the banquet.
This is the second year the Savannah Sports Council has provided this scholarship, and it has managed to more than double the fund from the first year.
The scholarship application can be found at SavannahSportsCouncil.com.
The deadline to apply is Friday, September 13, 2019 at 5 p.m.
