Nathan Regier Memorial Scholarship
The Nathan Regier Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to individuals within the Aldergrove Soccer Club who exhibit a commitment to the game of soccer as well as community involvement and scholastic aptitude.
Each year the Aldergrove Youth Soccer Society awards up to four scholarships to current soccer players in the Aldergrove community. The scholarships are presented at our Annual General Meeting in April each year. Applications should be delivered or mailed to the Club Treasurer no later than February 28 of any year. Applications for scholarships are limited to students currently attending grade 12 or students in their first year of post-secondary study.
Scholarships are conditional, in that the funds will be withheld until such time as the recipient provides proof that he / she is attending a post-secondary institute approved by the Scholarship Selection Committee.
