FC Dulles Scholarship Program

FC Dulles has a limited amount of funds set aside for scholarships to players who cannot afford tuition fees for our TRAVEL ACADEMY program. These scholarships are need-based and are dependant upon income and household size (see chart below). 

Scholarships are awarded based on family income and dependents. The maximum amount of award is 25% off tuition. Scholarships will NOT cover all player costs and tuition. Costs not covered include uniforms, additional practice t-shirts over two included for the year, Fairfax County field user fees, credit card fees, player's personal equipment, any outstanding balances, and the remaining balance of tuition not covered by the scholarship award. Our goal is to provide the youth in our community who want to play soccer the opportunity to do so. Scholarship funds are limited and will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. 

FC Dulles does not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, color, creed, religion, sex, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, and gender identity in acceptance of one’s scholarship application.

  3. The deadline to submit the scholarship application form and supporting documents is TBD for the 2020-2021 seasonal year.
  4. Failure to submit your most recent federal tax return (Form 1040) and supporting documents will result in an automatic declination of your scholarship application. A signed complete Federal Tax return (1040) is required in order to review and process your application. The player(s) you are applying for must be shown as a dependent on your tax return. Both pages 1 & 2 of IRS Form 1040 must be submitted showing the taxpayer's name and dependents on page 1 and wages and income on page 2).

  5. The club will notify you of your scholarship approval or declination and the amount of your scholarship award. The club will apply your award and adjust your installment plan accordingly. Please note: failure to keep current with payments will result in the player being placed in bad standing with the club and could mean suspension from all team and club activities. 
  6. Your player will only become 'active' and placed on a roster when the initial tuition payment and fees are paid on time. Failure to pay the initial payment and fees within 48 hours of the invite may result in your invitation being rescinded from the team. 

PLEASE NOTE. In return for a scholarship, parents will be expected to provide volunteer services to FC Dulles (Golazo!! Summer Kick-Off Tournament, Golazo!! Fall Kick-Off Tournament, Golazo!! Spring Kick-off, Soccer Fiesta, Club fundraising activities, Flash 4 v 4 tournaments, etc.). Failure to meet these basic requirements will impact any future scholarship applications.
