STFC Scholarships

At STFC, we take care of all our players

Scholarships at South Tahoe Futbol Club

STFC does not believe money should be a barrier to any player's participation in the Club.  Therefore, we have set money aside in our budget for player scholarships to help defer the costs of playing soccer for STFC.

Who is eligible?

All STFC players are eligible to submit scholarship requests.

Players can apply for STFC Scholarships in the Fall and Spring.
How much is available per player?

The scholarship amount granted will be $100 per player.

Please note: this is in addition to scholarships available directly from GBYSL to cover their league fees. See the Scholarship page on for more info.

Money can be used for STFC club related expenses.

How do I submit?

The player or parent will submit a scholarship request form and the player must write an accompanying essay.

How are the scholarships reviewed?

A sub-committee of the STFC Board will review all scholarship requests. The sub-committee will determine the award amount, and may consult the player's head coach or manager during this process.

How is the money distributed?
Once all scholarships are reviewed, the club will alert each team individually of the approval, and amount awarded to each player who requested and received a scholarship. The teams will then be able to reduce the relevant team fees a player owes, or the player may be reimbursed directly.
Can anyone be denied?

Yes. If a player has been placed in bad standing with GBYSL or NYSA or any other soccer league that has a reciprocity agreement with GBYSL or NYSA; or with NorCal Premier or US Club Soccer.

Will recipient of scholarship funds be required to do anything else?

Each scholarship recipient will be asked to perform 3 hours of community service for the club. This may include help with the annual Come Up For Air Tournament, or other club events. Failure to complete hours could result in future denial for players.

Are there any other limitations an applicant should be aware?

A maximum of three scholarships per family will be awarded.
