FAIRFIELD YOUTH FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIPS 2023 Fairfield Youth Football provides scholarships to help qualifying children participate in FYF Cheer, Flag, Modified Flag and Tackle programs. We are proud as a program to be able to help families within our community and will review each application on its own merits.
Our aim is to make the process of applying simple, easy and not overly intrusive. The information you supply will only be viewed by the FYF Scholarship Committee. The Committee will review applications at the end of each month that registration is open and we will let you know the outcome of your request as soon as possible after these meetings.
In order to apply for a scholarship, you must first register your child / children for the program/s they wish to participate in but do not pay! Then complete the form you can find here and submit.
Please note the following rules and requirements for any scholarships granted:
Athlete commits to attend all practices and games / performances
Parent / Guardian commits to participate in at least 10 hours of FYF volunteer work e.g. setting up / closing field of play, chains, play counting etc. for scholarships greater than 50%, or 5 hours for scholarships less than 50%, during the course of the program for which they received the scholarship
The maximum amount awarded per recipient family is $599 per calender year. Per IRS guidelines, FYF is required to issue a 1099 form to any individual or family that has received $600 or more in funds or compensation in a calender year
Scholarships will be considered on a total household income basis. In cases where parents are separated / divorced, each parent will need to complete an application. In such cases where one parent qualifies for scholarship and one doesn't, the maximum scholarship offered to the qualifying parent will be half of the total fee, with the non qualifying parent paying the full half
