Northeast Wolfpack Sports Scholarship Program
Our scholarship program supports our goal to allow every player to have the opportunity to play sports even when financial hardship affects a family.
Each year, pending financing and with Board approval, (NE.W.S.) will allot a designated amount of scholarship funds to sponsor players that are in need of financial assistance.
The (NE.W.S.) Board of Directors will review only fully completed applications and provide notification to all applicants. All information will be held in strict confidence by the (NE.W.S.) Board for sole purposes of determining qualification for the scholarship program. Interested applicants should complete the scholarship application and submit completed applications to email@example.com. (NE.W.S.) expects each scholarship recipient and family to maintain good sportsmanship throughout the season. Additionally, we ask that the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the player make a commitment for their player to attend all practices and games, and provide or arrange for transportation for the player.
Northeast Wolfpack Sports Association wants to make available the opportunity for kids from diverse socio-economic backgrounds to play football. This assistance will be for registration fees and will be funded with monies from outside of registration fee revenue.
