Scholarship Criteria

Texas TopFlight Volleyball Club (TFV) is offering a 2019-2020 Ivan Paul Rogers Scholarship for the upcoming season. Through his time, dedication, and commitment, Mr. Rogers has been a huge asset to TFV and is one of the reasons TFV has succeeded over the past 10 years. To honor his allegiance, TFV has named the scholarship after Mr. Ivan Paul Rogers. This scholarship will only be offered to a current TFV member that is in good standing and has submitted all the proper documentation. The recipient will be announced at the 2019 awards banquet.

This scholarship will be awarded by TFV to help the selected member with their TFV club volleyball expenses for the 2019-2020 season. This year, TFV will award one $1,000 scholarship. If a scholarship winner is ineligible to accept the monetary award due to interest of not returning to TFV, then the second candidate will be selected to receive the award. Recipient will be selected by a blind vote done by coaches, staff, and with the recommendation of Paul Rogers. Please note: This scholarship will cover indoor club fees only for the 2019-2020 season and has no cash value, is non-transferable, and will not cover travel/lodging expenses associated with the club.
