Scholarship Program

The Mahtomedi Fastpitch Association’s (MFPA) mission statement is: to provide players of all ages (U8 – U18) the opportunity to play competitive fastpitch softball in an environment where all players will be developing their skills and learning good sportsmanship and teamwork. 

To that extent, the MFPA has created a need-based scholarship program which may provide some financial assistance to those families in need.

Scholarship Guidelines

The parent or legal guardian of a participant who qualifies for ISD 832’s Educational Benefits Reduced/Free Lunch program is eligible to apply for financial assistance from MFPA.  Grants from the MFPA sponsorship program are available for up to 100% of the program registration fee less a $25 participation fee.  Eligibility for MFPA’s scholarship program requires submission of your qualification confirmation for ISD 832’s Educational Benefits Reduced/Free Lunch program along with your scholarship application.

Scholarship grants will be based on MFPA’s financial ability to provide along with the participant’s eligibility.  Funds may be limited and will be distributed as available on a first-come, first served basis to eligible athletes.  All participants are required to pay the $25 participation fee for each program enrollment in addition to any registration fees not covered by the scholarship grant.
