  • Played with Scottish United in their Under 17 Tier I year, and;

  • Competed with Scottish United for two or more consecutive seasons, and;

  • Is confirmed as an undergraduate student-athlete (soccer, and in any year of eligibility) at an approved and recognized post-secondary university or college, and;

  • Has used a year of collegiate or university player eligibility in the year in which the award is granted.

Additionally, the recipient will evidence outstanding athletic participation, demonstrated leadership qualities, involvement in volunteer activities, commitment and dedication, passion and love for the sport of soccer. Donations may be made to this scholarship fund if so desired. All donors will be recognized annually.

A panel will be assembled to assess all the applications, and make the award no later than September 30 of the respective year. The scholarship will  be reviewed periodically at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
