CHANGES TO THE SCHOLARSHIP POLICY

Effective on all Fall 2017 registrations and beyond, EAA is implementing changes to the scholarship policy.

Before you apply for scholarships for Fall 2017 programs (or later) PLEASE READ THE UPDATED POLICY before submitting your requests.

 


Scholarship Guidelines

  • A parent or legal guardian of a participant who qualifies for ISD #196's free/reduced lunch program may apply for a scholarship for financial assistance of registration fees (see listing below for FULL or PARTIAL scholarships). You must submit a copy of your qualification letter with your scholarship application.

For guidelines and information on ISD #196's free and reduced lunch program go to: http://www.district196.org/District/Departments/FoodNutrition/Menus/Pricing.pdf

  • Eligibility for our scholarship program does not guarantee that you will receive assistance. Funds are limited and will be distributed as available on a first-come, first served basis to those who qualify.

Eligibility for EAA Scholarship is stated in the EAA Bylaws under ARTICLE II – PURPOSE:

"The purpose of EAA shall be to promote and operate athletic programs for youth either residing within the City of Eagan, MN or attending a school located within the City of Eagan."
 
  • FULL Scholarships cover the following program fees: In-House Baseball, In-House Basketball, Cross Country, In-House Flag Football, In-House Spring Indoor (Box) Lacrosse, In-House Soccer, In-House Softball and Fall Fastpitch, In-House Track, In-House Spring and Fall Volleyball and Wrestling.  Scholarship grants will cover all but $25.00 of the published registration fee*.

*The $25.00 participation fee must be paid by the applicant. 

 

  • PARTIAL Scholarships apply to the following programs and cover up to the comparable sport fee from the FULL Scholarship list:  Tackle Football, Traveling Baseball, Traveling Basketball, In-House Spring Lacrosse, In-House Summer Lacrosse, Traveling Soccer, Traveling Fastpitch, League Only Fastpitch and Traveling Volleyball.  
  • Recipients must live within the participation boundaries of the EAA.
  • Families with children that attend private school are NOT eligible for EAA scholarships.
  • Scholarships are limited to a maximum of ONE sport per participant per registration period, for a maximum of 2 per participant per year. One only scholarship may be requested/used per season.
  • Scholarships only apply to the sport registration fee.  Some sports require volunteer hours and additional fees such as uniforms, tournament fees, camps, clinics and fundraising.  Scholarship funds will not cover these additional fees.  All fees above and beyond the registration fee are the responsibility of the participant. 
  • Scholarships will not be granted for registration fees already paid. You must submit the application first, then if approved you will receive instructions for how to register.
  •  Late or incomplete application submissions may result in participants not being placed on a team. An application indicating the specific sport is required to process all scholarship requests.
  •  EAA will use reasonable care to keep all information confidential.

Application Process

• To apply for an EAA scholarship, please email your application and qualification letter to: scholarship@eaasports.org or mail to EAA, P.O. Box 211202, Eagan, MN 55121.
