Random coincidence - There seems to be some sort of American football skills event going on below my work sponsored by the Jacksonville Jaguars (whose owner is trying to buy Wembley)
That’s kinda cool, I wanna join in
The NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, the UK’s NFL home team, and Official UK Founding Partner LGT Vestra US have created a unique new university scholarship opportunity, the Gridiron Grant.
The Gridiron Grant is a first of its kind sports scholarship programme in the UK, offering a university scholarship to two students graduating from the JagTag programme, or who are involved in American football in their community each year.
Students interested in the opportunity have until April 20th 2018 to apply for the Gridiron Grant, at which point a panel of experts that includes LGT Vestra US executives, Jaguars representatives and an education representative from the Government will select the recipients based on a range of criteria such as academic achievement, participation in American Football, commitment to the community and a demonstration of personal endeavour. The inaugural winners of the Gridiron Grant will be announced later this year following the completion of the academic year.
