The Physician Foundation is offering scholarships to help the players who want to pursue a medical career.
The group says the goal is to give them the opportunity to earn a college degree by the age of 22.
The foundation will accept players from every state, plus Washington, D.C., where former Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman is a medical student.
They will also be eligible for scholarships up to $50,000.
The winners will have to apply by Oct. 31 and receive the final decision by April.
The awards are in addition to the $2,000 for each year of eligibility, which is capped at $50.
The winners will also receive $1,000 toward the school they attend, with up to four players eligible.
The foundation says the program is a way for the winners to “build personal confidence” by gaining the skills and experience they need to be successful in medical school.
“Physician Formula is designed to empower the winners by offering them the tools they need in order to graduate from medical school with a college diploma and medical training in the United States,” the foundation said in a statement.
“By applying, the winner will receive a college education that can be a lifeline for future medical careers.”
