Jo Meza Memorial Scholarship - Roseville Youth Soccer Club
2015 information will be announced in May 2015 after winners have been notified by their schools
2104 Jo Meza Memorial Scholarship winners!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Jo Meza Memorial Scholarships! Each year the Roseville Youth Soccer Club (RYSC) invites graduating seniors to apply for our $1,000.00 scholarship awards. Students who have participated in RYSC soccer for at least three years and meet other academic requirements are eligible to submit their applications. Along with the application the students include an essay that covers how playing soccer has impacted their lives growing up. The RYSC Scholarship committee reviews the applications and collectively the winners are chosen.
Students from the Roseville Joint Unified High School District (RJUHSD) are invited to apply. This past year the club voted to expand the program by increasing the awards for $500.00 to $1,000 and invite At Large schools to participate as well. The At Large schools are defined as schools outside the RJUHSD including private campuses and students who are home schooled. Because this past year we did not receive any applications from Granite Bay or Antelope High Schools, the board decided to allocate those funds to students who did apply and thus we awarded several additional $500.00 winners this year.
The RYSC Scholarship Committee would like to congratulate the following award winners. They would also like to wish all of the graduating students the best of luck as they enter the next phase of their young lives.

Each year the Roseville Youth Soccer Club (RYSC) awards scholarships to graduating high school students who have participated in our club for at least three seasons prior to graduation. This participation can be as a player at the recreation or select level, as a licensed referee or as a coach. During previous years the club has awarded a $1000.00 scholarship to a student from each of the following high schools; Woodcreek, Roseville, Oakmont. Antelope and Granite Bay.
This year, in addition to these aforementioned scholarships, the RYSC has decided to grant an At Large scholarship. The scholarship will go to a 2014 graduate who also meets the same requirements and will graduate from a high school other than Woodcreek, Roseville, Oakmont. Antelope and Granite Bay.
