Hood® Sportsmanship Scholarship™
For more than 160 years, Hood has been committed to supporting families and communities across New England. Hood is proud to be able to give 18 student athletes an opportunity to win a $5,000 college scholarship.
To be eligible, high school seniors must have proven their ability to put the spirit of competition above winning while participating in a varsity sport. These students must have also earned a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher and performed volunteer work in the community. Applicants will be asked to write an essay explaining how they display sportsmanship and integrity on and off the field.
Each student who meets these standards and completes the essay will then be voted on in an online competition. The 10 applicants from each New England state (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) who have received the most votes will be interviewed by a select panel of judges. The panel of judges will then select three students from each state for a total of 18 scholarships. Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony and inducted into the Hood Sportsmanship Hall of Fame.
Applicants must enter by 3 p.m. EST on March 1st. Voting begins February 15th on our website and ends at 3 p.m. EST on March 15th.
