Mike Kabanica Scholarship Application

Each year WYSA grants six scholarships to graduating seniors who portray commitment and excellence in their high school years; beginning with the 2018 graduating class, each scholarship winner will be awarded $1,000. This scholarship fund is named for Mike Kabanica, a long time WSA president. In order to apply, candidates must be a current year member of WYSA and a graduating high school senior. Three young women and three young men are selected based on their dedication to the sport of soccer, excellence in the classroom as well as their involvement in community service.
