Budget and number of scholarship recipient limits:The number of funded scholarship recipients will be determined by the scholarship budget rather than a fixed maximum number (e.g., 50). Based on the budget set for a particular season, the following priority list below will be used until the budgeted funds are used. Unused budget rolls over to the next season.
Prioritization when budget is insufficient for all eligible applicants:The budgeted funding will fund approved scholarships above based on the income eligibility. If the available budget is not sufficient to fund all eligible players, the following priority will be used as a guideline by the scholarship committee. The scholarship committee can recommend exceptions to this priority (in unusual circumstances) to the board for approval.
1) Funds available are first used for returning players who fulfilled commitments the previous season
2) Remaining funds for new players who are residents based on team level (first, second, etc) and age level from oldest age group down to 4v4 (up to team limits and total number of recipient limit)
3) Remaining funds for new players who are non-residents based on team level (first, second, etc) and age level from oldest age group down to 4v4 (up to team limits and total number of recipient limit)
4) If budgeted funds fall short of all eligible participants in one of the steps above, the scholarship committee may recommend the funds be allocated at a proportional level within that step. For example, if only 75% of funds remain to fund new non-resident players (step 3), each eligible non-resident player may be allocated 75% of the amount they are eligible to receive.
5) Based on recommendations from scholarship committee and approval from the PASC Board (taking into account age group considerations, team stability considerations, technical and executive director input, etc.), remaining funds, if any, can be allocated to teams with special needs, e.g., teams with needs beyond team limits, or to fund new non-resident applicants in first season, or to fund adjustments recommended for needs beyond total recipient limits.
