The Foundation for Global Sports Development Selects 2015 Exceptional Youth Scholarship Winners

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2015

The Foundation for Global Sports Development is pleased to announce the winners of their inaugural Exceptional Youth Scholarship Award. Launched this year, the scholarship was created to recognize deserving high school students whose academic and extracurricular achievements surpass standard expectations.

“While 10 students were chosen to receive GSD’s youth scholarship award, the decision was challenging as we received numerous applications from exceptional youth,” said GSD Executive Board Member, Dr. Steven Ungerleider. “While our winners were selected for their remarkable academic achievements and commitment to community service, we also considered each applicant’s financial need.”

Scholarship recipients have been awarded $ 5,000 to be used towards their 2015-2016 tuition and expenses at a four-year university or college.

We have the utmost confidence in this group of fine young people and look forward to hearing about their achievements in college.”
