Proceeds from the event will benefit The Strikes For Kids Scholarship Program which allows proceeds from these fundraising events to go toward assisting students with offsetting school expense costs. Strikes For Kids will be donating four (4) $500 scholarships to the University of Washington Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards. The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards helps University of Washington undergraduates develop the skills and personal insights necessary to pursue scholarships appropriate to their goals.
They also provide information and resources to increase student awareness of the scholarship search and application process via workshops, events, online resources, and individual advising. They mentor students through an intense process by offering resources, advising, and individual feedback which result in competitive applications for local and national scholarships. They collaborate with faculty and staff to identify and support potential student scholars.
