Each year, Randolph Youth Soccer Association will give up to three
$500 scholarships to graduating seniors who will be attending college or vocational trade schools in the next
academic year. The awards shall be determined by a committee of 3 RYSA board members that do not
have a family member or child of a close friend submitting an application for that year.
To be eligible for the scholarship you must be a graduating senior in good standing with your
secondary school, complete the standard scholarship application form available at Randolph High School and you
needed to be a member of RYSA for 2 consecutive years. The scholarships will be awarded to the recipient
after completion of the first semester in college/vocational school with a GPA of > 2.0 or a
grade of Pass in a Pass/Fail system. They will also need to provide proof of registration for the
next semester. It is the recipient's responsibility to forward this information to the Chairperson of the
Scholarship Committee as soon as it is available.
If for any reason the recipient no longer meets the inclusion criteria to receive the RYSA scholarship they must
write a letter of appeal to the scholarship committee explaining their dilemma (i.e. transferring to
another school in the fall, illness, military). If it is for poor academic performance, the student will have
until the completion of their freshman year to bring their GPA up to > 2.0 or Pass. If they
still fail to meet the criteria at the end of the freshman year, the scholarship will not be awarded and the
funds will be left in the RYSA treasury.
Each scholarship is awarded to a student based on the total points scored from their application. Depending on
the student's level of accomplishment, the student will receive 0-3 points (areas 1-4) in selected academic,
athletic, general and community service areas. Selected areas of accomplishments in soccer are weighted and the
student can receive 0-6 points (areas 5-6) in these areas. Commitment to volunteer service to RYSA is weighted
and the student can receive 0-9 points (areas 7-8) in these areas.
