West Coast Jamboree Scholarship Program

The West Coast Jamboree scholarship program for senior girls who participate in the West Coast Jamboree will move into its second year in 2018. The total amount of funds available for the scholarship winners will be least $5,000, though the number of players who will receive scholarships in 2018 has yet to be determined. Last year, there were three recipients.

The West Coast Jamboree Scholarship Program will consider athletic achievement, good sportsmanship, academic excellence and leadership as criteria for awarding the scholarships.
