The Heisman Trophy Trust is pleased to introduce the High School Heisman Scholarship Program, a continuation of the legacy of the original Wendy’s High School Heisman program created in 1994 by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in partnership with the trust.
The Heisman High School Scholarship program honors the nation’s most accomplished, community-minded high school senior athletes. By inviting students from schools across the country to share their stories of leadership and impact, the program aims to inspire all students to harness their potential, push their limits, and use their talents not only to advance their own futures, but to improve the communities and world around them. Scholarships of up to $5,000 will be awarded.
From its inception, the program has leveraged the reputation of the Heisman Memorial Trophy as a symbol of great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work.
Over the past 25 years, the program has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors and provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in college scholarships to students and more than a million dollars to high school academic and athletic programs across the country.
IF YOU’RE ONE OF THE 1.4 MILLION HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT EXCELS IN THE CLASSROOM, ON THE FIELD AND WITHIN YOUR COMMUNITY, APPLY NOW.
