High school seniors are in the final stretch of their high school career! As they look forward to college they'll probably think "oh no... this is going to be really expensive." Fear not, high school seniors! Mike Zimmer (the Vikings head coach) is here to help!

The Mike Zimmer Foundation, which was founded in memory of Mike's wife who passed suddenly in 2009, is now accepting applications for their 2019 scholarship. There will be two $10,000 one-time, non-renewable academic scholarships awarded this spring.
