Youth Scholarship FAQ
What is the Stronger Together Foundation? Strengthening the youth and our community through sports and activity is the goal of the Stronger Together Foundation. We will maintain an important focus on keeping children active in the community and their continued growth through sports. We want to impact the lives of youth in the area through activity one child at a time. Our goal is to provide all youth the opportunity to learn, participate, be active and grow as athletes and kids. We would hope that no child is turned away from sports or camps because of financial reasons.
Do you have to apply to participate in a particular organization? Stronger Together will work with any organization in the Mid-Missouri area to provide financial assistance to those that qualify. As long as the organization you are wishing to participate in will allow Stronger Together to provide a portion of your fees, you fill out an application and the Board of Directors approves your application, we will provide financial assistance for your youth.
Who qualifies for a Stronger Together Scholarship? The Stronger Together Foundation has been established for individuals or families who without assistance would not be able to participate in youth sports or camp activities. Children must be ages 3 and up. If your family has also come upon a sudden hardship (illness, loss of a parent, divorce, etc).
How do I apply for a Stronger Together scholarship? Fill out an application with all the appropriate documentation; turn it in to Synergy Sports. The Board of Directors will review it and determine how much scholarship will be awarded.
Can my family receive a full scholarship? Stronger Together believes in a sense of ownership while participating in our programs. We will pay up to 75% per athlete (funds permitting) and your family will be expected to cover the remaining percentage, membership waiver, uniform costs for all competitive teams as well as travel expenses.
How will the scholarship amount be determined? Scholarships are determined on an individual basis using a sliding-fee scale guideline to assist in determining the amount of assistance. Once the application is submitted, along with the appropriate documentation, you will be notified within 2 weeks as to the outcome of your application.
How long does the scholarship last? Each scholarship is on a season-to-season basis. If you need financial assistance for more than one season/session it will be addressed on a case-by-case situation.
Do I need to do anything in return upon receipt of my child receiving a scholarship? You and your family will be expected to volunteer at events that we have throughout the year. When volunteers are sought after, you will be one of the first to be asked.

“My decision to sponsor a child through the Stronger Together Foundation is about connecting. In particular, connecting a child with the sport he or she loves but is unable to participate in lessons, games, etc. due to financial constraints.”
