SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Financial assistance is available to athletes training with Youth Sports Alliance (YSA) winter sports programs and to students participating in YSA after-school programs. Scholarships are provided through the Stein Eriksen YSA Opportunity Endowment. The endowment provides funding to:

  • Get Out & Play/ACTiV8 participants who receive free or reduced lunches at school, or demonstrate significant financial need that would prevent students from participating in YSA after-school programs. Scholarships are available for every program; and

  • Athletes in good standing and enrolled in a YSA winter sports program are eligible to apply for financial assistance if unable to train and compete without the help of outside funding. Athletes must demonstrate a commitment to their sport(s), receive a nomination from coach or program director, and show financial need. Scholarship application cycles run annually from August 14th through September 14th and February 1st through February 28th. Athletes are eligible to apply during both cycles.

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DOCUMENTS FOR ATHLETES TRAINING WITH YSA WINTER SPORTS TEAMS

Scholarships applications must be submitted between February 1st and February 28th. Please note that several changes were made to the application process this year, please read through requirements carefully.
