In 2001, the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. introduced a scholarship program. This program has been initiated to reward one male and one female youth with a $1500.00 scholarship, to help further their post secondary education.
This annual scholarship is not meant to be an academic or athletic award. The scholarship is honored to the outstanding individual who has a good academic standing, and been involved within the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. in some sort of capacity (player, coach, and/or referee). The awarded individuals will possess strong personal attributes such as leadership, community involvement and will be excellent role models for the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. and of course the game of soccer.
Education in this day and age is at a premium. The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. feels it essential to help individuals achieve their goals. Through the WYSA Scholarship the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. is helping provide opportunities for post secondary education.
