The AAU Middle Atlantic District will be awarding seven deserving AAU members with scholarships to aid in their education. This is the sixth year the Middle Atlantic District will be administering these awards based on excellence and involvement in sports, commitment to community, academic achievement and outstanding sportsmanship. These scholarships will range from $1,000-$5,000 for a total of $25,000.
The main goal of the Scholarship Program was established to raise awareness among our District's youth of the critical role that Athletics plays in the building of American youth.
The District awards honor Middle Atlantic AAU High School Athletes who show:
- Outstanding leadership abilities
- Great sportsmanship
- Strength of character
- Academic prowess
Two more awards will be given to a volunteer coach and a non-coach volunteer. The Coach and Volunteer Awards each recognize an individual whose volunteer leadership in the Middle Atlantic District has been transformative and who has mobilized and unified athletes, programs and organizations that improve the events, the youth or others affiliated with the sport.
Scholarship applications are due by January 15, 2016 and the Coach and Volunteer nominations are due by March 1, 2016. You can apply for both of those HERE.
