The AAU Karate Scholarship was first introduced to AAU Karate Members at the 2004 AAU Karate National Championships which was held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Over the past ten (10) years, we have had the opportunity to give the scholarship to many deserving individuals. Will you be the next recipient?
AAU Karate Scholarships are awarded annually to a young man and a young woman who have participated in AAU Karate for a minimum of four years. No other applications will be accepted. Applications may be submitted to AAU Karate on behalf of an applicant that meets the qualifications, and (a) will be attending an accredited undergraduate college or university for the academic year beginning in the Fall, or (b) are presently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate college or university. Two $1,000.00 AAU Karate scholarships will be awarded.
