Justin Cruz Scholarship (For Wall residents only, By 5/1/2020)

Postby ChristineF » Tue Jan 28, 2020 1:36 pm

The Justin Cruz Scholarship Foundation is accepting applications for the annual scholarship program, open to all soccer players living in Wall Township who will be graduating from high school and going on to pursue a higher education at a 4-year college, while planning to keep soccer in their lives.

Last year, the foundation awarded a total of $8,000.00 to students fulfilling the requirements from Wall High School and Christian Brothers Academy.

Our goal is to offer a $1,000.00 scholarship to one male and one female who fulfill the requirements. Due to the excellence of the applicant pool last year, the Foundation awarded additional scholarships to qualifying applicants.

To qualify for the scholarship, candidate must:

• Complete application
• Reside in Wall Township
• Prove soccer career history of at least four consecutive years
• Complete a 700-word essay describing “the role of team athletics in the life of a high school student today, demonstrating commitment to the ‘love of the game’ and quality sportsmanship”
• GPA of at least 3.0
• Describe soccer level-of-play plan in college
• Provide a copy of a college acceptance letter

Additional information may be obtained by the local High School Guidance offices or by speaking with Michele Cruz at (732) 223-2206.

Applications should be postmarked no later than May 1, 2020 and mailed to:
Justin Cruz Scholarship Foundation
1405 Winesap Drive
Manasquan, NJ, 08736
