Founded in 2001, Foot Locker Foundation, Inc. provides support for educational and sports programs across the country that equip children and young adults with the necessary tools to achieve their goals and be successful in life. Continuing in its efforts to serve in the community, Foot Locker Foundation, Inc. has partnered with UNCF to fund this scholarship program for students attending a UNCF member college or university during the fall of 2021. All Undergraduate classifications (freshman, sophomore, juniors and seniors) will be considered.
High School seniors are eligible for consideration provided they are attending one of the 37 UNCF member colleges or universities this coming fall 2021. A UNCF member school will appear in the drop down options during the application process. If you are not planning to be enrolled in one of those particular schools in AY 2021-22, you are ineligible for consideration.
The following are excluded from the eligible class: (a) officers and directors of the Foundation and of Foot Locker, Inc. and its affiliates and (b) family members of these officers and directors.
Completed application packages include: transcript, essay, and one letter of recommendation from a faculty member, employer or other community member familiar with your academic performance. All information will be submitted in the appropriate section of the online application.
Students must complete the FAFSA form and all parts of the online application by deadline to be considered; and students must have demonstrated unmet, financial need as verified by the college or university. Additionally, due to the anticipated overwhelming response in applicants, recipients will be notified in writing with an award letter. All non-selected students will receive an auto notification at the conclusion of the award process.
Current UNCF-Foot Locker Scholarship recipients must reapply to be considered for funding during the 2021-22 academic year.
Please allow 12-16 weeks following the close of the application for decisions and disbursements to occur.
