The Fine Print

The Foundation will offer scholarships to youth who would otherwise not be able to participate in youth basketball camps and other skill development programs. Low-income youth, defined as qualifying for free or reduced lunch, are encouraged to apply. Scholarships will be awarded based on the youth applicant’s (“Entrant”) completed application, financial need, and youth basketball camp availability.

Please note: Incomplete applications will not be eligible for a scholarship. Entrants must be ages 7-15. The Foundation cannot guarantee requests for specific youth basketball camp sessions or clinics; you will have to register directly with camps.

Entrants can only be awarded one (1) scholarship per calendar year. If Entrant is not awarded a scholarship for a particular application period, Entrant is welcome to apply again during the next application period.

The Foundation will review all eligible submissions received during a particular application period and award potential recipients of the scholarship based on the strength of an Entrant’s completed application, financial need, and youth basketball camp availability.

Entrants that properly complete all necessary steps and submit by the end of the particular application period, will be chosen by the Foundation or their designee as a potential scholarship winner (“Potential Winner”). Potential winners will be selected within twenty-one (21) days after the particular application period ends. Each potential winner will be contacted by email and/or phone (“Scholarship Notification”) promptly following the selection and must redeem the scholarship within forty-eight (48) hours of the scholarship notification.

To be confirmed a scholarship winner (“Scholarship Winner”), Potential Winners will be required to sign and return within ten (10) days of notification attempt by the Foundation, a scholarship acceptance letter, or the scholarship will be forfeited and an alternate potential winner may be selected by the Foundation (and in such case this process will be repeated).
