Scholarship and Grant Programs
THE NCRA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The NCRA scholarship program was created to provide funds to deserving students that are involved in the sport of racquetball. These funds are restricted to this use. Each scholarship will normally be in the amount of five hundred dollars. Scholarships will be limited to four per year according to availability of funds. These funds may be used by the student as set forth in the application package. It is not mandatory that all scholarships be awarded each year. Scholarships may be carried over yearly and at some point may be used to set up an educational endowment if sufficient funds are available. All decisions as to who receives scholarships each year will be based upon a majority vote of the NCRA Board of Directors. A scholarship committee consisting of three members appointed by the NCRA Board will make recommendations to the Board. Scholarship applications must be submitted by June15 preceding the beginning of the school year. Scholarships will be awarded on August 1st of each year.
THE NCRA JUNIOR PLAYER GRANT FUND
The NCRA Junior Player Grant program was created to supply funds for one deserving junior player with chaperone to attend the Junior World or Junior National Racquetball Championships each year. Five hundred dollars will be available to be awarded to the player who has completed the application process and shown through his/her ability and hard work to be deserving of the chance to attend their choice of these two tournaments. The fund will also supply money for up to two junior players to attend an accredited and approved racquetball camp each year. These grants will be in the amount of the actual cost of attending but in no case may exceed five hundred dollars each. It is not mandatory that all these funds be awarded each year. These funds are restricted to this use. Funds will be made available to the junior player two months prior to the time of the event. Grant applications must be submitted five months prior to the event. All decisions as to who receives grants each year will be based upon a majority vote of the NCRA Board of Directors. The same members that make up the scholarship committee can also make up the Grant committee.
