SSSF Completes 2017 Scholarship Cycle

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) recently completed its 2017 scholarship program awarding $99,600 to deserving athletes involved in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP). Scholarships benefited 109 SCTP athletes and 7 SASP athletes from 24 different states who are heading for higher education.

Athletes graduating from high school and enrolling in college  were eligible to apply for this year’s scholarships. Awards are based on SCTP/SASP participation, academics, need, essays and other factors. Scholarships were funded by generous shooting industry sponsors and partners including the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA), National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA)/National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) as well as supporters and donors who provide support to national SCTP fundraising banquets. Additional scholarships for the SCTP were awarded thanks to special support from Browning and the National Rifle Association (NRA).

From 2013 through its 2017 distributions, SSSF has awarded over $300,000 in scholarship funds benefiting over 300 student athletes from 39 different states in the Scholastic Clay Target and Scholastic Action Shooting programs.

Watch for details on the 2018 scholarship program on www.sssfonline.org in early March, 2018.
