Team/Athlete Scholarship Program

Recruiting Classroom’s Scholarship Program provides support for participation fees and equipment to approved individual families who have a general need of assistance to ensure the opportunity for their child to participate in sports. After a review of a program’s application, Recruiting Classroom will purchase the necessary equipment for the family/team or provide the program/league with the funds to support the equipment purchase or participation fee payments.

  • Consideration will be based on need, complete submission of required information and availability of funds at Recruiting Classroom
  • Funds will be provided either directly to the program owner or to the vendor for the purchase of equipment or to pay a team fee; at no point will funds be made payable to individuals through this program
  • Team may apply for a maximum scholarship value of up to $10,000 per year. Families who apply may apply for a maximum grant value of $1,000 per year. Average grant valuation is expected to range from $250 – $500 for individuals and $2,500 for teams.
  • All data received will remain confidential and be used solely for general statistical information
    All funds awarded will be made at the discretion of the Scholarship Grant Committee
