New! 2013 Scholarships & Bursaries - Deadline is August 5, 2013
Scholarships & Bursaries
In 2009, the Board of Directors approved the development of two financial assistance programs to university/college bound athletes playing with our member clubs.
The program consists of two components designed to assist YRSA players in their pursuit of post-secondary education – entry scholarship and varsity bursary.
Each season, two YRSA members, one male and one female, will be selected from all qualified applicants to receive $1,500 entrance scholarships. This is designed for graduating grade 12 studies who have been accepted into a Canadian post-secondary program commencing in September of the current season.
The bursary program is designed for YRSA players currently playing varsity soccer for Canadian universities/college teams. Available funds are divided annually amongst qualified applicants to a maximum established by the board.
