MyKarateStore.com, an online martial arts equipment supplier that carries everything from Wing Chun Dummies to Tokaido uniforms, officially announced their 2021 Warrior Scholarship for current or incoming students. Now in its 5th year, the scholarship is distributed annually to cover the rising costs of college education. Students may use the award to help pay for educational expenses like housing, books, meals, and school supplies.
"College tuition is becoming harder than ever to cover, especially with the difficult situations of the 2020-2021 school year. Education is vital to the future of our country, however - and help build the warrior-scholars that this world needs more of,” said Debbie McNutt, Director of Marketing for myKarateStore.com. “As the cost of educational expenses rise every year, covering costs such as housing, books, and school supplies can become increasingly difficult. Passionate and talented students of martial arts shouldn’t have to turn away from their dreams because of rising costs."
The annual scholarship of $500 will be awarded to help martial artists cover the costs that come with pursuing martial arts on top of college expenses. In order to apply, applicants must first submit a 500 to 1,000-word response to the question: How has my martial arts training prepared my for my future?
Eligibility guidelines are open to all martial art styles and require the applicants to be accepted or currently enrolled in a college or university program in the United States. Students must have at least one year of martial arts training, and must be currently enrolled in a martial arts training program. Letters of recommendations from current instructors will be required for fully applying.
“Our scholarship is available to students of any martial arts style background,” said McNutt. “It doesn’t matter to us which style a student pursues – what is most important is their commitment and dedication they embody in achieving mastery inside and outside of their school. The winner will be chosen based on the excellence and uniformity of their essay answer, educational track record, and personal recommendation. We look forward to reading about the passions many students of martial arts around the country share.”
Additionally, student applicants must have a GPA of 3.0 of above in their current institution. Students are asked to submit their letter of recommendation, unofficial transcript, and essay response altogether. The three components are required to give the reviewers at myKarateStore.com a full picture of the deserving scholarship recipient.
Officially announced this week, applicants have until June 1, every year to submit their applications. Members of myKarateStore.com want applicants to take their time compiling the required documents, and of course, drafting their stellar essay answer. The winner will be determined no later than June 15, every year.
