Applications are due April 8 - Apply today!

The Abilene Sports Alliance is a committee under the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau.  Along with the purpose to put more “heads in beds” through sports and to host a great Champions Classic year after year, the Alliance offers scholarships to local high school student athletes.

The applicants must graduate from one of our local high schools in May 2011 and begin an upper level education; be that university, junior college or trade school in the fall of 2011.  The athletic coordinators and counseling office at all four high schools, Abilene Christian, Abilene, Cooper and Wylie have the guidelines and applications.  You can also email me at and I will send you one.  Applications must be turned in to the Athletic Coordinator on your campus by April 8.  No late applications will be accepted.

The selection committee is looking for leadership and integrity qualities in the recipient.  One boy and one girl from each of these four schools will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship at their senior awards assembly in May.  A total of $8,000 will be distributed to worthy young men and women.

If you or someone you know meets these qualifications get an application and turn it in!
