How to Qualify

JCF is not currently accepting academy applications.

In order to ensure that a student's preferred sports academy meets the Junior Champions Foundation standards for excellence, academies must apply for qualification. In order to qualify, please gather and submit the information requested in our online application.

Once an academy is qualified, they can recommend students to apply for scholarships. While academy recommendation is considered in the determination, it does not guarantee that a student will receive a scholarship. Students must apply and be approved of their own merit. Academy qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. After that time, academies must reapply. Scholarship money is awarded directly to the student, not the academies. Students must apply individually.
