GENERAL INFORMATION

CEVA has two scholarship funds that directly assist student-athletes and their families with unpaid club dues.  Scholarship monies are distributed to clubs and applied to the student-athlete's account by the club.  No monies are distributed directly to families or athletes.

The CEVA Memorial Scholarship Fund assists student-athletes who can demonstrate financial need through proof of receiving government assistance (such as free/reduced lunch programs, WIC, etc.). 

The CEVA #VolleyTheChange Scholarship Fund assists student-athletes who have other barriers to entry besides financial need.  Established in the Summer of 2019, the scholarship aims to help players of color, players from an ethnic minority, and players who identify as members of the LGBTQ community.  This scholarship is also intended to remove barriers to entry for players who have a chronic medical condition, mental health condition, and/or learning or physical disability.

Applications open - 9:00 AM on October 3, 2022
Application deadline - 3:00 PM on November 1, 2022.  This deadline is firm.  Late applications will not be accepted.
