To be eligible, high school seniors must have proven their ability to put the spirit of competition above winning while participating in a varsity sport. Students must have plans to further their education by attending a two-or four-year accredited college or university in fall 2017. Students must have also earned a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher and performed volunteer work in the community to be eligible. Entering applicants will be asked to write an essay explaining how they display sportsmanship and integrity on and off the field.

  • Scholarship finalists will be chosen via online voting at between March 27, 2017, at 9AM EDT and April 10, 2017, at 3PM EDT. Schools and applicants should encourage the community to visit to vote for their favorite student.
  • The 10 students from each of the six New England states who receive the most votes will be interviewed in late April by a select panel of judges. Three students from each state will be selected as winners for a total of 18 scholarships.
  • Scholarship winners will be honored at an awards ceremony and inducted into the Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship Hall of Fame, located at The Sports Museum inside the TD Garden in Boston.
