PAF Family Scholarship


Since 2016, the PAF has awarded qualifying children of former NFL players in their educational and athletic endeavors. This scholarship was designed to reward high school student-athletes who have been accepted to a university, college, or two-year institution and have been offered the opportunity to compete in collegiate athletics.

The PAF is honored to recognize this special group of high school student athletes for their academic achievements and future career goals. In 2018, the PAF awarded $57,500 in scholarship money to 23 student-athletes, who are the children of former players.
