HOUSTON, Texas – They’re four legendary quarterbacks on a mission to change lives.
Hall of Famer Warren Moon, Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware, University of Texas legend Vince Young and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson were all raised by single mothers who instilled the value of education in their sons.
Formed under the leadership of these four quarterbacks and in partnership with the Sports Authority Foundation, Brothers in Arms is proud to announce that they’re accepting applications for their 2021 class of diversity scholarships.
Eligibility requirements include that applicants must be student-athletes, reside in a single-parent home and carry a 3.0 GPA or higher. They must also demonstrate leadership, a strong community service record and demonstrate financial need.
Brothers In Arms has increased the scholarships from $5,000-$7,500 this year and scholarship applications and full eligibility requirements are available at www.BrothersInArmsHouston.com/apply. The deadline to submit is December 18, 2020.
“The impact of these scholarships that we were able to see in our first year was nothing short of incredible,” said Moon. “We selected three amazing kids that we know are going to go on to do amazing things. Now we want to do more. More kids, more scholarships, and the ability to change even more lives.”
The first class of scholarship winners were named last January, and all three students are currently completing their first semester of college. Westbury High graduate Langston Ellis is at Prairie View A&M, Westside grad Vankey “Blu” Burks is attending Stephen F. Austin, and Sealy’s Matthew Lord is at Sam Houston State.
“Brothers in Arms has given us the opportunity to give back in ways that the four of us could have only dreamed of when we were young,” Ware said. “I can’t wait to watch all of our scholarship recipients thrive as they continue their education and beyond. Year One of Brothers in Arms was just the beginning…”
