SUPPORT THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW
The GRACEDBYGRIT foundation will help develop tomorrow’s business leaders by offering female high school athletes scholarships to ensure their collegiate success.
We recognize that athletics can positively affect the personal development of a young woman, encouraging goal-setting, leadership, and teamwork. By creating a scholarship to honor female athletes who have overcome adversity, we hope to alleviate one of the personal obstacles that young women face when pursuing academics and athletics simultaneously.

Young women build self-confidence through participation in sports.
Research shows that young women who participate in sports have more leadership opportunities in their careers.
Almost 94% of women in the C-Suite played sports growing up and over half played during college.
Many female collegiate athletes are faced with financial constraints.
The GRACEDBYGRIT scholarship fund recognizes academic and athletic excellence. We created this scholarship to honor female student-athletes who have demonstrated GRIT by overcoming obstacles and adversity in their personal life.

“Something happens when girls play sports – they embody the experience of not just winning, but the critical experience of losing. It’s that process of carrying on and clearing hurdles that really builds confidence. It’s an incredibly useful proving ground for business and leadership.
