A new scholarship at West Virginia University will assist student-athletes whose parents or siblings are on active duty in the U.S. military or serving as law enforcement officers.
The Marc Bulger Foundation Athletic Scholarship will provide a yearly scholarship to those students, according to the Mountaineer Athletic Club.
The foundation’s namesake is Marc Bulger, a former Mountaineer and NFL quarterback.
Bulger says his grandfather was a city police officer and the endowment is a way to give back to WVU.
