The coaches of all RugbyNY high school teams will be invited to nominate a candidate from their team. The coach should make their nomination based primarily on the intangible personal attributes set out in the program description.
Upon receipt of the nomination from the coach, the scholarship manager will contact the candidate to invite them to complete an application.
A committee will review the applications and pick a scholarship winner based on the application and input from the player’s coach.
Scholarship applicants will be judged first on the basis of coach’s nomination, then secondarily on academic record, school and community activities, honors, work experience, the exceptional circumstances.
All information received is considered confidential and is reviewed only by the review committee established by the Buffalo Rugby Club (to include representatives from RugbyNY).
The winner(s), coach and team will be announced to all members of RugbyNY, Empire GU, and the Buffalo Rugby Club.
