USAR Scholarship Applicants

Graduating high school seniors and college undergraduates can apply for competitive USA Racquetball scholarships each year. This year's deadline is January 31, 2018. Funding for the program is underwritten by USA Racquetball members, the National Masters Racquetball Association and the Women's Senior Masters Racquetball Association through tax deductible donations to the scholarship fund. Since the program's inception in 1990, more than 100 individuals have been awarded more than $60,000.

Applicants must be current USA Racquetball members at the time of applying for consideration of an award. All applications received by the above deadline are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, which is comprised of current members of the USA Racquetball Board of Directors.
