KYSA Scholarship Awards

The 2018 KYSA Scholarship Application Form will be available in the Spring.

To qualify, an applicant for a KYSA Scholarship must have been registered in the association for three or more seasons (not necessarily consecutive).  KYSA Scholarships are presented to selected students proceeding from Grade 12 to a university or other accredited post-secondary institution approved by the KYSA Scholarship Awards Committee and/or students already attending a post-secondary institute, but were under the age of 18 as of January 1 of the current year.

The KYSA Scholarship Awards Committee chooses each recipient based on a variety of criteria, such as an applicant’s scholastic achievements, participation in school activities, leadership qualities, sportsmanship and time spent volunteering in church or community organizations. Soccer talent is just one of the yardsticks the selectors use to determine the award winners. A candidate’s contributions as a referee, coach or manager in the KYSA is also taken into consideration.
