Dear Parents and AHS Athletics Supporters,
We are excited that we are exactly 3 weeks to the April 1, 2022 Submission Deadline to receive Applications from student athletes for the student scholarship program that the Amundsen Athletics Foundation has established. With your support AAF has been able to raise $4000 to offer 4 $1000 scholarship to our student athletes that meet the criteria for this 2021-2022 school year.
The foundation was very passionate about establishing this scholarship to offer our student athletes continued support and access to new opportunities beyond the walls of Amundsen High School. We hope you will encourage your student athlete to consider reviewing the criteria and submitting an application to the foundation for the Selection Committee to review.
