Ashburn Girls Softball League (AGSL)
Madison Small Scholarship Program
The AGSL student athlete scholarship program provides partial college scholarships to deserving young women that have demonstrated sportsmanship, citizenship and commitment to the game of softball that resulted in a positive impact on their own development and AGSL as a whole. Up to three partial scholarships will be awarded each year to be used at an accredited college, university or vocational institution toward direct costs (tuition, books, room & board).
The Scholarship award amount will be based on the number of recipients, but not less than $500 per recipient. Scholarships will be awarded in May.

Eligible participants must submit their completed application packages to AGSL not later than April 15th.
