Softball is a beautiful game and playing it always leaves one with some mental and physical satisfaction. At YourSoftball.com we are all about softball and our passion and love for the game is what drives us. The site provides a platform for softball lovers to gather and share ideas on how we can improve the game and help those that are just starting out get the right gear so that they can also get to love the game as much as we do.
Just like many other sports, softball has been facing many challenges over the years, and it is becoming harder for the young players to focus on it as they have many things to worry about. One of the main issues is college tuition because education is now more expensive than any other time. It is as a result of this predicament and a few other reasons that we have YourSoftball annual external scholarship.
This scholarship is all about helping young softball players and those that are passionate about the game complete their education. We know that the sport needs all of us to develop and by helping a few softball enthusiasts with their education we will be contributing to building the game. These students will not have to worry about tuition fees or paying back students loans, and so they will have time to help develop the sport either as players, bloggers or participate in any other active way.
The award value for our annual external scholarship is $1000. After going through the applications, we will select the best or the one that stands out from all the others.
The Winner's story will be featured on YourSoftball.Com on Dec 30.
We will notify the winner through an email after which we will send the award money to the Financial Aid Office of his or her college.
