The Dominic DePalma Memorial Soccer Scholarship

Celebrating the Life of Dominic DePalma – Never Forget

Apply for the 2024 scholarship

The Dominic DePalma Memorial Scholarship is awarded to “under the radar” middle & high school aged Colorado residents, U13 to U19, who seek to continue their soccer participation.

Scholarship application should list desired amount and its intended usage: club team fees, school team fees, travel expenses, uniform cost, etc. Scholarships are awarded annually in memory of Dominic DePalma, a passionate player and empathic teammate, who knew leadership didn’t always come from captains and coaches. Leadership may come from the unrecognized teammate who is leading while standing by your side.

So: do you know a high school aged player who has GRIT? Maybe one who is deciding whether or not they want to keep playing, but you just know their entire heart still beats on the field.

Scholarships will be awarded prior to the start of the fall sports season.
