When the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy was initially conceived, one of the first items of discussion was how to get financial aid to students with need. We decided to ask corporations, foundations, and individual benefactors to help us bring kids to the Academy who would otherwise not be able to afford this experience. Without hesitation, our "fellow visionaries", as we like to call them, responded with an emphatic "YES", and the Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation was born.
The Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation, a 510(c)3 public charity, provides all need-based scholarships and is proud to continue to grow its MISSION. Building on a foundation of sports and fitness, we empower girls and young women from all socioeconomic backgrounds to become leaders who positively impact their communities. ALL Scholarship and Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation information can be found at our foundation website, www.foudyleadershipfoundation.org
SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR FORMER SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS: Please read the scholarship details on the Foundation website (see link above) carefully. A new funding program for former JFSLA students who have already received a scholarship from the Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation was implemented in 2013.
