The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation announced today – in conjunction with National Girls and Women in Sports Day – that its Girls in Football Scholarship application is officially open.
The Bucs became the first NFL team to establish a nationwide academic scholarship program designed to benefit female high school football players who want to pursue a career in sports back in November of 2019.
Girls interested in applying for the scholarship can do so here.
According to the Buccaneers' website, applicants for the scholarship must have plans to enroll in a full-time accredited four-year college or university and have earned a minimum 3.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) during their high school academic career. The application will close March 23, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. and the inaugural round of awards will be distributed after the 2020 academic school year.
