In 2020, Coach Pinkel awarded 24 scholarships through the GP M.A.D.E. Foundation. This inaugural class of students came from all walks of life. “There were some incredible stories of what some of these kids have had to overcome to get where they’re at and it’s pretty awesome,” Pinkel said.
In 2021, an additional 10 students were chosen to be GP M.A.D.E. Scholars.
All recipients have the opportunity to received up to $8,000 in scholarship funds payable over a 4 year period if they maintain a certain GPA, attend a Missouri school and continue as a student in good standing.
The long-term goal is for the GP M.A.D.E. Foundation to award $2,000/year renewable scholarships annually and continue Making A Difference Every-day.
