Scholarship Award Program
Whitby Iroquois Soccer Club has been involved with the development of youth soccer in Whitby for a number of years. The Club's soccer program has produced both professional and international players who have represented Canada at the international level. The Club is also interested in the educational development of our young men and women. As a result, we are proud to offer a Scholarship Program to assist eligible players, coaches and referees who aspire to further their studies by attending University or College.
The program provides scholarships to WISC players who are in Grade 12 at High School and intend to go on to College or University. These scholarships are provided to individuals who are chosen by the Club Scholarship Committee and who meet the Scholarship Program eligibility criteria.
