THE MAJORITY OF THE SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AWARDED TO THE COMPETITION TEAM. HOWEVER, AT THE DISCRETION
OF THE COACHES, SOME HIGH ACADEMIC ACHIEVERS ON THE SPIRIT TEAM MAY RECEIVE $500-$2,000 SCHOLARSHIPS AS WELL.
Scholarships recipients are selected at two different levels. Rookies will be offered scholarships
based on tryout scores. The most a first year team member will be offered is a $3,000 scholarship for the academic year. Veteran
scholarships are based upon the ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE, attendance, athleticism, participants ATTITUDE, and COMMITMENT from
the previous year. Scholarships range from $500 awards to the equivalence of an in-state tuition scholarship amount. If any
scholarship recipient falls short in fulfilling their ACADEMIC/athletic obligations during the first semester, they may forfeit
all or some of their scholarship money for the second semester and most likely the following year. All scholarship recipients
are expected to maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA at all times. Falling short of this requirement will endanger the life and amount
of the scholarship for that individual.
