Each year, pending available financing, grants, and fundraisers, the Ambush Scholarship Foundation will be rewarding High School Senior student-athletes with scholarships up to $500 per student athlete per year. The award can be used for any cost associated with going to further their education.
This scholarship will take into account your school GPA (copy of latest report card), community service hours (recorded & documented), number of years playing on an Ambush AAU team, a letter of recommendation, the number of family members (brothers & sisters) in your household, and your love for learning and growing on and off the court demonstrated within your short essay and other measures that have been witnessed throughout the season! All coaches will be seeing this and will have a say for all of their players!
This information will be held in strict confidence by the Foundation for sole purposes of determining qualifications.

* HS Coach = "Besides being a great student in the classroom, I have seen Christian turn into the leader that his teammates wanted to follow. He has stepped up daily and put himself into difficult positions, like when we needed a shot at the end of a game. The team knew when Christian spoke the team listened. All of this can only be done with hard work, dedication, and great time management." - Keith Kiper

* HS Principal = "He is a natural leader on and off the court. He demonstrates incredible integrity, honesty, and reliability for someone his age. In the classroom, he signed up for every advanced course we offered and always completed assignments on time. He aspired to be a doctor and he will succeed in doing so because he will commit everything he has to that goal. It was a true honor to serve as his principal!" - Rich Faivre
