LYAFC Scholarship Expectations

Scholarship Recipient Expectations

BACKGROUND

Lawrenceville Youth Association Football & Cheer currently awards a select number of need-based scholarships to allow athletes to participate who otherwise could not. LYAFC awards only partial scholarships. To apply for a scholarship, parents/guardians of scholarship candidates submit online application. Scholarship requests and supporting materials are submitted and reviewed by the executive board prior to the final GFL mandated registration date.

EXPECTATION

To better meet the demands of providing a quality football/cheer experience for our youth and

Community. LYAFC will require, in return for a scholarship, the parents/guardians of scholarship recipients commit their time at a level above what is expected of all LYAFC parents/guardians.

REQUIREMENTS

When a scholarship is awarded, scholarship parents/guardians agree to one or a combination of options of their choosing to fulfill this commitment. The option(s) would add up to a commitment of up to 8 additional hours. Scholarship recipients will have their commitment reduced on a pro-rated basis, e.g. the parents/guardians of 50% scholarship recipients would have to fulfill a 4 hour commitment. LYAFC may need to adjust chosen options and/or hours based upon LYAFC’s need and what is deemed reasonable. It is not expected, however, that total hours will exceed 10. All balances are due at the final registration. In no case will the scholarship athlete be eligible for a scholarship the following year if the parents/guardians have failed to fulfill the additional volunteer time commitment. If your commitment is not fulfilled all normal fees will be charged to you.

  1. $100 scholarship-Serve 8 hours of service (additional hours outside your scheduled commitment)
  2. $75 scholarship- Serve 6 hours of service (additional hours outside your scheduled commitment)
  3. $50 scholarship- Serve 4 hours of service (additional hours outside your scheduled commitment)
