New England Pride Scholarship
The primary mission of the Youth New Englands is to provide an opportunity for elite youth wrestlers in New England to showcase their talents while striving for a New England title. The tournament directors are also interested in promoting the sport of wrestling by supporting New England wrestlers beyond the youth level. With this in mind, the New England Pride Scholarship (NEPS) Awards have been created to recognize graduating high school seniors who are moving on to collegiate wrestling.
High school seniors who intend to wrestle in college, and who formerly competed in the Youth New Englands, are encouraged to apply for a scholarship award. In order to be considered for a NEPS Award, you must complete the scholarship application that is posted on the YNEW website.
Ultimately, the NEPS scholarship program aims to be an incentive for collegiate wrestlers to continue their athletic careers, acquire a meaningful education, and eventually give back to the sport of wrestling by supporting future generations of New England youth wrestlers.
