  • Recipients must be a full-time undergraduate student, attending UCF, working on their first degree. Exceptions are allowed for graduating seniors who are not full-time.
  • The student must document that they are eligible to play for UCF Rugby Club in a national collegiate competition according to the criteria set by USA Rugby.

  • Must be enrolled full-time as an undergraduate in their first-degree program.
  • Must be in good standing as defined by the university.

Incoming members must demonstrate previous rugby experience and must become active members in the UCF Men’s or Women’s Rugby Team to be considered for the scholarship.
