In 2015, the Board of Directors of the West Michigan Youth Soccer Association ("WMYSA") established a college scholarship program to provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors who have participated in the West Michigan Youth Soccer Association for at least five years.
WMYSA will again be awarding one $500 scholarship to the top male and female athlete as determined by an impartial committee based upon the evaluation of the scholarship applications; not the athletic ability of the player. Additional scholarships may be available if funding can be secured.
In order to be considered, seniors must have achieved a minimum Academic Average of 2.5 unweighted grade point average and anticipate attending an accredited college or trade school. In addition, consideration for an award includes each candidate's participation in voluntary and community service activities.
The deadline for the application will be January 11, 2019. All applications will remain confidential and will be reviewed by members of the scholarship committee only. Scholarship winners will be announced and awards presented at the 2019 WMYSA Annual Presidents dinner in February 2019.
