Mardak Scholarships

The Mardak Scholarships will be awarded in the Fall semester this year. 

Eligibility:  Mardak Scholarships will be awarded to full time college applicants who have taught handball through their community handball program anytime during 2019.  The Mardak Scholarships are available to any students teaching handball, not just handball players.  As an example, Kinesiology Majors (who will teach Physical Education) and are involved in teaching at one school.  Requirement:  Applicants must be USHA Certified Level I instructors.

Award:  This year, six $2,500 scholarships are available through the Mardak Scholarship program.  

How to apply: Please send an essay outlining current academic status and course work, handball experience and/or teaching handball experience.  Please include unofficial transcripts and how the money would help further the applicant’s education.

Applications will be reviewed with the intent to reward students in good academic standing.  Of course, good character and financial need are other considerations.
