The achievement gap seems impacts more than just academics; for example, extracurricular activities are not accessible to everyone. I will be researching whether there is a disparity between various socioeconomic classes and their participation in club sports. My plan is to develop a scholarship program through the Stanford Soccer Club. I will use the application process to gather research data by including a series of questions on why applicants need the scholarship. This way, I can both gather data and offer support through implementation of the scholarship itself.
