Sean James Student Athletes
Providing Scholarships for Underprivileged Youth to Attend Summer Arts & Sports Camps.
Sean James Student Athletes Foundation (SJSA) mission is to provide youth who have achieved academic success and display a passion for sports and the arts, the opportunity to attend sport and creative art camps throughout the country, thus fostering leadership and confidence. SJSAF was created from one meaningful experience former NFL running back Sean James had as a mentor for a seventh grade boy who grew into the first college graduate of his family. Through this experience, Sean could see what impact one mentor could have on one child and decided he wanted to do more. In partnership with The Boys and Girls Club, SJSA provides scholarships to students, in New York City and Sean's home state of Kansas, who wish to excel in ways they may not have otherwise thought possible. Because Sean is a strong believer in education he emphasizes to all students who enter the program to not only excel in their chosen sport or art, but to also excel academically.

The Sean James Student Athletes, in partnership with The Boys and Girls Club, provides scholarships to students in New York City and Sean James’ home state of Kansas who wish to excel in ways they may not have otherwise thought possible. Students who are interested in applying for scholarships must provide school transcripts, with one recommendation letter from a teacher and a second recommendation letter from a coach or music/art teacher expressing the excellence they have witnessed and the potential they foresee. The student is also required to submit one previously written and graded essay, as well as a newly written essay as to why he/she wants to be involved with the SJSA program and what he/she hopes to gain. During camp, students will explore their talents, receive advice from professional athletes and business leaders, and build relationships that could last a lifetime. Participating camps are based on university campuses, such as Princeton University Sports Camp, University of Kansas Camps, University of Maryland and Hutchinson Community College.
