George Pratt Memorial Scholarship

The Cape Express Soccer Club (CESC) will award scholarship(s) to applicant(s) based on academic achievement, school activities, participation in the CESC and participation in other sports and community service.  Applicants will not be selected solely because of their soccer ability or achievements in soccer, but rather on the basis of all-around general achievements while also being a soccer player at the High School or Varsity Club level.


To be eligible, a student must meet the following criteria:
 - High school senior

 - Playing high school or club soccer their senior year

-  Planning to continue their education beyond high school at an accredited College or University

The judges have been advised to give preference to players who:

-  Plan on playing soccer in college.  It is suggested that your application reflect that desire.   

-  Players cumulative time playing for CESC

-  Players who still currently play for CESC

Please note, these are guidelines and the selection panel will blind review each application to find qualified young men and women that best meet these criteria.

The minimum scholarship award per student is $500. The maximum total amount of scholarships awarded by the club for any graduating class is $4,000. The specific number and total amount of scholarships awarded will be determined by the CESC Board of Directors on a yearly basis based on the quantity and quality of applicants and the availability of funds. The CESC reserves the right to not award scholarships for any given year as it deems fit.

Applications are made available in the Fall/Winter of the student’s high school senior year.  This year's application is now available here.  Applications must be completed and submitted to the Board Secretary by March 16th of the applicant’s senior year of high school.

A three-person selection panel comprised of community members not directly affiliated with CESC (no current Board Members, Coaches, Trainers or parents of current players) will blind review the applications and make recommendations to the Board for award of scholarship.  Names of applicants will be withheld from both the outside panel and the Board until after award decisions have been made. 

The recipient of scholarship must provide proof of actual registration to an accredited college or university for the first award semester or equivalent in order to receive the funds. If they plan on playing soccer for the school, they should also provide proof of contact with the Coach/Program. The scholarship check will be made payable jointly to the recipient and their parent/guardian.
