COVID-19 and the Heisman High School Scholarship

An Unprecedented Year for Unprecedented Winners

The global pandemic has altered many aspects of the high school experience for the class of 2021. But one thing it cannot change is the spirit of a true winner. In these unprecedented times, schools and communities have relied on the courage and determination of student leaders perhaps more than ever. And across the nation, this year’s graduating class has risen to the occasion, finding new ways to set the example while supporting and inspiring their peers and neighbors.

Our senior scholar-athletes have been forced to make many sacrifices during the crisis, but being recognized and rewarded for their remarkable accomplishments to date will not be one of the them. This year, The Heisman Trophy Trust along with Acceptance Insurance is proud to continue the 26-year tradition of honoring the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors and supporting high school academic and athletic programs across the country through the Heisman High School Scholarship.

While COVID-19 has not caused any changes to the Heisman High School Scholarship application or program, if you have questions regarding eligibility due to the impact of the pandemic on academic, athletic or community service activities, please contact our customer service team.
