CBYSA 2020 Scholarship & Canon L. Swim Memorial Application

************************************DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 21, 2020******************************************

Due to the Pandemic, we have decided to extend the date to give applicants more time to be able to finalize documentation with their schools, considering the schools have not been open.  PLEASE GET YOUR APPLICATIONS TURNED IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!


The Coastal Bend Youth Soccer Association (CBYSA) coordinates youth soccer activities in the Coastal
Bend region and is dedicated to promoting the sport for children from ages four to eighteen. Part of our
mission is to also promote the ideals associated with soccer, which include teamwork, community
involvement, and of course athleticism. As part of this endeavor, CBYSA annually honors high school
seniors that exemplify these ideals by awarding college scholarships that are funded by our annual
Thanksgiving Tournament.

Each year, applicants complete the attached form and provide the required transcripts, essays, and
letters that are then reviewed by a CBYSA committee. The applicants are ranked and up to four
scholarships are typically awarded. This year, there is a new category and the top ranked applicant will
receive the Canon L. Swim Memorial Scholarship. Canon Swim was a high school soccer player that
exemplified all aspects of participation in soccer, as well as community service, that CBYSA seeks to
honor. Not only was she a star soccer player, but she was a referee, helped with field maintenance, and
was highly involved in volunteering inside and outside of soccer.
