2017 WTF-FRST Scholarship Announcement

NAH is proud to introduce WTF-FRST (Women/Trans/Femme Financial Resource for Skills and Training), a scholarship to assist outstanding WTF players in attending tournaments! This fund was conceived of by Krista Carlson of LA Bike Polo, and founded by Sarah Livingston of Portland Bike Polo and Shannon Frey of East Van Bike Polo.  We are proud to be working with them to see this initiative born in this exciting year of North American bike polo!

For 2017, two scholarships will be awarded to up-and-coming players who wish to attend Fixcamp, and two will be awarded to players competing in either the NAHBPC or WHBPC. Applicants will be evaluated on their need, commitment, goals, and contributions back to the WTF polo community.

Fixcamp Development Scholarship (2 winners)

  • Applications are now being accepted until March 31: English | Spanish

  • Scholarship winners will be announced April 15.

NAHBPC/WHBPC Travel Scholarship (2 winners)

  • Applications for the NAHBPC/WHBPC Scholarship will be open from May 1 until May 15.

  • Scholarship winners will be announced May 30.

Our kick-off donation campaign will run through March 31, during which time we hope to raise $2000 for our inaugural scholarships.
