Women's Division - "We Play Hard" Scholarship Announced

By NWBA, 04/25/16, 10:30AM CDT


Applications available for New Women's Division Scholarship

The Women’s Division of the NWBA is proud to announce the launch of the ‘We Play Hard’ scholarship program. The Women’s Division has created a scholarship that will enable juniors and adults with disabilities to pursue their dreams of sporting excellence, on the Paralympic, World and National stages. Participating in sport also helps Individuals with disabilities to go further in life—to set and achieve goals like graduating college, getting a job, buying a home, traveling, having a family. And, for those Individuals who have the potential to become great athletes, the time, training and travel it takes to achieve that level of greatness takes resources---resources that a lot of families simply don’t have.
The Women’s Division of the NWBA created the ‘We Play Hard’ scholarship to help fill that gap. The Women’s Division will provide 10 scholarships of up to $300 to eligible applicants for assistance with travel, training and other costs necessary to help pave the way for these young athletes to achieve sporting excellence—excellence that will carry over into creating a generation of talented and committed leaders who are ready and willing to share and give back. We invite interested athletes, who are on a women’s division roster for the 2015-2016 year, who are passionately pursuing dreams of athletic glory to apply.
Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and you will be notified by mail of NWBA.  Applicants are eligible to receive one scholarship per calendar year. Applicants may then reapply during the next calendar year; funding for one year is not a guarantee of future funding. If you have questions or need further information, please contact Keith Wallace at
