The AthLife Foundation is seeking high school grant applicants willing to implement effective programming that will promote the ideals of Positive Youth Development through Sport, and the critical creation of a professional academic-athletic support position – a year round caring adult mentor.
High schools, who compete interscholastically, and seek to create their own programming to utilize sport as a powerful vehicle to promoting academic achievement, develop leadership skills, and prepare deserving student athletes to compete in their future careers beyond sport are eligible to apply.
Schools that traditionally serve students from; lower socioeconomic public, non-public, Tribal/BIE schools, schools with statistically lower graduation rates, lower post-secondary matriculation rates, and higher percentages of students from single or no-parent households, are strongly encouraged to apply. The grant process is highly competitive.
