Sports 4 the Kids scholarships are granted to 5 to 18-year-old children for all programs that support the S4TK mission to give every child a chance to participate. If the program of interest is not on the application, please email with program information so that our team may contact the director or coach to determine a plan to support your child.

Eligibility is based on meeting the scholarship requirements stated in the application and/or other extenuating family circumstances. Scholarship funding is limited based on available funds.

Please allow up to two weeks for our Sports 4 The Kids Team to review your application. We will contact you via Email after your application has been reviewed by the S4TK Scholarship Committee. Our team will try to help as many children as we possibly can, but we may not be able to assist due to limited funding. Please be patient and know that we will try our best to accommodate every request in a timely fashion.
