Scholar Athlete Application
On Friday, May 17, 2013, at the Broward County Convention Center, we will host The O.B.I.E’s (Orange Bowl Impact & Excellence Awards). We will select the most outstanding male and female nominees from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Each student will receive a $2,500 scholarship, which must be applied towards college tuition, fees, housing and/or books. Recipients MUST BE PRESENT to receive their awards.
As you evaluate your student-athletes, we ask that you consider a student who has played sports for multiple years, has a financial need, has demonstrated a commitment to the total school program and community, faced adversities, overcome milestones and has maintained above average grades. The accompanying official transcript, student essay, recommendation and comments are essential to the selection process.
Nominees must meet all eligibility requirements and deadlines to be considered as an Orange Bowl Scholar-Athlete. Nomination packets must be received in the Orange Bowl Committee offices no later than 5:00 p.m. Friday, April 26th. Enclosed you will find a complete nomination packet including eligibility requirements and provisions. Please mail or fax the completed nomination form to:
