2023 Chelsie King Garza Essay Scholarship – This Scholarship Has Been Awarded
Most college students have seen headlines regarding the legalization of NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) sports deals in the NCAA, which allow student-athletes to receive compensation for their likeability as an athlete. Athletes using their compensation to pay for college and receiving money in what is known as a pay-for-play deal have been topics of controversy with the inclusion of the NIL deals.

The $1,000 scholarship essay contest is open to any student who will be enrolled in an accredited college or university in February 2023, or who will have been accepted to a college or university by that date.
