Fort Wayne United Scholarship Information

Financial Aid:

Please read through the information below in order to determine if you qualify.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE CRITERIA/GUIDELINES

With limited funding available, Fort Wayne United FC takes numerous factors into account when determining eligibility. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Did this player receive aid in the previous season? If so, were volunteer hours completed?
  • Are there special circumstances that are contributing to the need for Financial Assistance?
  • Was the request received before August 15th? The majority of the fund for the year has been distributed by this date.
  • Where do they fall in relation to the U.S. Federal Poverty guideline for household income which is used to determine financial eligibility for certain federal programs.  While we do not adhere to these numbers specifically, they do provide a starting point. Below are the 2019 numbers:

Despite the limited resources, it is our wish to help as many people as possible!

Financial Aid Procedures:

  1. Accept your player’s position on the team by signing up in Got Soccer and paying the initial deposit of $300.  If financial aid is granted, your monthly payments will be adjusted from Aug through April.
    NOTE: Your player MUST first be registered and the deposit paid in order to reserve his or her position on the team and be considered for financial aid.
  2. Fill out the Financial Aid form through this link REQUIRED FINANCIAL AID FORM
  3. Send your tax return (from both parents if they did not file jointly) from the previous year to Nancy at nancy@fwunitedfc.com.  These forms MUST be turned in for financial aid consideration.
  4. You will be contacted once a determination is made.  Payments will be adjusted before your payment plan begins on August 15th.
