Allie Walker Named CFP Tuition Giveaway Recipient

THE FLATS – Allie Walker, a member of the Georgia Tech cross country and track & field teams, has been chosen by the ACC as a recipient of the 2022 Go Teach Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway. One student-athlete from each school who will receive $2,500 on behalf of the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation and Dr Pepper to assist in their continue pursuit of a degree or career in education.

The 15 student-athletes were chosen by campus representatives and a Grand Prize winner will be selected by the ACC’s award committee.

Including the Tuition Giveaway, the ACC and CFP have announced they are funding $75,000 in classroom resources projects. As a part of the Go Teach initiative, the projects are designed to meet teachers’ needs in area schools, including classroom supplies and mental health resources. Over the past seven years, the two organizations have invested more than $1 million in the teaching profession.

 

 

Competitive Drive Initiative
In a unified endeavor, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation, Georgia Tech athletics and the Alexander-Tharpe Fund have come together to accelerate funding for student-athlete scholarships with the launch of the Competitive Drive Initiative. The initiative kicks off with the Accelerate GT Match Program, where any new gift to the A-T Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund made through Dec. 31 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Georgia Tech Foundation, up to $2.5 million. Should Accelerate GT reach its $2.5 million fundraising goal, the matching gift would result in a $5 million impact for Georgia Tech athletics.
