Altitude FC Scholarship Program

Altitude FC is proud to offer financial support to athletes in need. The goal of the scholarship program is to benefit the Jefferson County community of athletes and all potential AFC players by decreasing financial barriers and making the experience and teamwork of youth soccer available to more young athletes.

Scholarships are awarded for players enrolling in the fall for the full season. Applications will be reviewed annually in advance of new registrations for the fall.  Age groups whose season is limited to spring or fall are still considered full season participants and may apply in advance of their season.

How to apply

Applicants must complete the Scholarship Application, a statement of need from the parent and a letter from the athlete describing what an award would mean to them.

The Altitude FC Scholarship Application is a  PDF that allows you to print and fill out the form. AFC-Scholarship-APP-060914
