Boston, MA, February 18th 2013 – CoachUp, the country’s leading private coaching company, has announced that it will begin accepting applications for its 2nd annual scholarship program.  The scholarship program directly supports the company mission, to change the trajectory of kids’ lives through sport. Students nationwide, that have participated in sports and have been accepted into, or are currently enrolled in a US college or university, are eligible to apply.  CoachUp will award 3 student scholarships in the amount of $2,000 cash for school, plus $500 toward private coaching sessions through CoachUp.

CoachUp has made several changes to the scholarship program.  Students are now able to apply for one of the scholarships with a general application.  To be considered students must complete an online application and submit a personal reference, a short essay and a 1 minute video essay.
