Scholarships available for Sports Camps

Monday, April 4th 2016 - 12:00 am

Sure Shot Scholarships:

Equal opportunity sports enthusiasts!  So far we’ve sent kids to camp for judo, gymnastics and horse-back riding, in addition to more conventional team sports like softball and soccer.
*  There is no hard deadline for applications, but early applicants stand the best chance of being awarded a scholarship.
*  Eligible candidates will enter grades 6 through 12 in the fall, have a minimum B average (or equivalent), and provide a recommendation from a coach or teacher.
*  The scholarship is good for any sports camp identified by the scholarship applicant; if an applicant isn’t aware of what camps might be available, we help them with the search.
*  Also, please note that the scholarships are targeted at student athletes whose families are financially unable to send them to sports camps this summer.

More information, as well as the scholarship application, can be found on our website: www.sureshotscholarships.org
