WWE (NYSE: WWE) is pleased to announce it has awarded three $10,000 scholarships to the following deserving Full Sail University students:

• Claribel Ross, a Full Sail University Film graduate and current Entertainment Business student from Chelsea, Mass.

• Hamza Aboufirass, a Full Sail Film student from Marrakesh, Morocco.

• Hunter Haines, a Full Sail Film student from Dublin, Ohio.

This brings the number of scholarships awarded to Full Sail students by WWE to six, for a total of $60,000 since the company began its partnership with Full Sail in May 2012.

These scholarships will be applied toward the recipient’s areas of study within the university. WWE selected Ross, Aboufirass and Haines to receive this scholarship for exhibiting exceptional professionalism, creative talent and maintaining good academic standing, while shadowing professional WWE staff and crew during the production of NXT events at Full Sail University in Winter Park, near Orlando.

“We are humbled by the continued dedication from WWE in recognizing the efforts and dreams of our students by supporting their educational journey through this scholarship program,” said Garry Jones, president of Full Sail University. “We are also thrilled to have served as the destination for the very first live in-ring event streamed on the groundbreaking WWE Network.”

Paul Triple H Levesque WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events and Creative, added: “NXT ArRIVAL made history last week becoming the first-ever, in-ring event to be live streamed on WWE Network. It is only fitting that we award these scholarships to Full Sail University students that have served as an integral part of the NXT production team.”
