Three new “Lezama Scholarships”


Irune Maza, Ander Egiluz and Nerea Kortabitarte, former footballers in the Club’s youth team, have been awarded scholarships by the Foundation

For several seasons, the Athletic Club Foundation maintains a scholarship program, Lezama Scholarships, for players who have been discarded in Lezama for sporting reasons, but who for several years have shown a firm commitment to combine the practice of football with their studies. The objective is to reward the determined effort of the players so that both formations, football and academic, are compatible. The scholarships consist of the payment by the Foundation of a year of studies, adapting to the needs of each player.

The scholarship recipients this year are Irune Maza, Ander Egiluz and Nerea Kortabitarte, for whom the Foundation will pay the cost of their studies at Boise State University (USA), the University of the Basque Country and the Begoñako Andra Mari Teacher Training College, respectively.
