We are committed towards raising funds and awareness to promote the sport of badminton. Our mission is to establish Olympic Grants and Badminton Scholarships for US athletes who are qualifying for the Olympic Games or pursuing a college education and career in badminton at the professional level.
The foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation and all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
The First Ever Foundation is committed to give back to the badminton community and future champions of America on and off the court.
Through the organization we will provide athletes the resources to qualify for the Olympic Games and develop an avenue for our young talent to have the opportunity to be a “student-athlete”; to continue their education in college while pursuing their Badminton dream at the next level. We aim to promote the sport at the highest level by running events, training camps, clinics, and charity tournaments for our Badminton communities. This is the purpose, dream, and mission of this organization and we are excited to make a positive change in our community.
Any current, graduating seniors or full-time college students from a 4-year, US accredited college or university is welcome to apply. This scholarship is focused on student-athletes pursuing Badminton at the professional and Olympic level.
