8. Scholarships and Financial Aid
NCJLA Player Scholarship Application
The NCJLA has a scholarship program that can reimburse clubs up to 50% of the financial aid offered to families who have an approved financial aid application request on file with their club. Clubs need to have a current, working, established financial aid policy that is made publicly available to all club families. Each year, the NCJLA Board approves a budget for financial aid reimbursement for the upcoming season. Click here for the program scholarship application form.
Applications are due January 30th of each year via an online form on the NCJLA website under the club administrators tab. The NCJLA Executive Director will contact the Club President once the award amount has been determined. Clubs will receive the award amount as a credit to their season officials fee invoice. Should a club not have an officials invoice for that year the Executive Director will contact the Club President to make other arrangements to deliver the funds.
