Full Sail University today announced through a blog post that WWE has awarded five $10,000 scholarships to students who are studying entertainment business, sports marketing and media, film, recording arts, and show production.
This brings WWE’s investment at the University to $110,000 in just two years as the company continues to help out the home of NXT. The five students who are the latest recipients of these scholarships were chosen because of their hard work and professionalism when tagging along with WWE staff during production of NXT shows at the University. NXT is filmed and produced on-location at Full Sail University using the University’s state-of-the-art equipment.
“The remarkable partnership between Full Sail and WWE has provided a plethora of valuable benefits to our students and graduates since its inception,” said Garry Jones, president of Full Sail University. “WWE has continually recognized the dedication of our students through this one-of-a-kind scholarship program, and we are humbled to have achieved this milestone together bringing the total amount awarded to over $100,000 through the presentation of these latest five scholarships.”
Triple H, who heads up the NXT shows said that this money will help the students continue their academic career and all these students play an important role in NXT’s success.
