HARDSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS

Hardship scholarships will be available for individuals where the economic situation of the family makes it very difficult to afford the program registration fee.  Scholarships will be available for the following programs:

Traveling Basketball

Rec Basketball

Lacrosse

Softball

Baseball

Tennis

Any other TAA sport or activity where the Program Director deems the awarding of a scholarship is appropriate.

The scholarship will cover all registration and normal uniform costs for the league and/or All-star program.  The individual will be awarded a scholarship provided the individual meets the following conditions:

1.  The individual is a resident of Tewksbury Twp. or attends one of the Tewksbury Township Public Schools (TES, OTS)

2.  The parent(s) of the individual have requested a scholarship.

3.  The Program Director is in agreement with issuing the scholarship.

Scholarship costs are budgeted for by the Program Director and are a part of our registration fees.

Hardship individuals from outside of Tewksbury Twp. need to be funded via a sponsorship, unless the individual attends one of the Tewksbury Schools as mentioned above.


THE TIM PIERSON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Tim Pierson was an active member in the TAA community and coached many sports.  Unfortunately, Tim passed away in 2001 doing what he loved to do best.....COACH!

The family offers scholarships to two 8th grade students who exhibit good sportsmanship and many years of participation in Tewksbury athletics.  The awards are decided by the coaches of the TAA in June and awarded by the Pierson family at Commencement Exercises.

OTHER SCHOLARSHIPS 
From time to time, the TAA Board may grant other scholarships based on need and/or merit at its discretion and based on prevailing circumstances.
