RIPUL 2019 Rising Star Scholarship

The Rising Star Scholarship is a Spirit-based scholarship awarded to the RIPUL player that best exemplifies Spirit of the Game and follows the RIPUL Community Agreement both on and off the field.

The scholarship is open to any student either enrolled as a full-time undergrad, about to enter their first year of undergrad, or a graduate student. This year we will be awarding one (1) player with the Rising Star Scholarship, in hopes of making a larger impact, which will be a minimum of $1,000.00. The Scholarship and FUNd Committees will be fundraising throughout the season and hope to be able to award more than $1,000.00, too.

Please fill out the form and submit BEFORE or ON JULY 31st, 2019. The Selection Committee will review both your answers in the application, and a reference from two (2) current RIPUL captains (these do not have to be your current captains, and you should talk to them before listing their names below). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to All responses will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and the winners will be announced at the RIPUL tournament on August 10th, 2019.

To raise money for the scholarship, the FUNd Committee will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets this week. If you are the winner of the 50/50 raffle you win 50% of the total earnings. The other 50% will go towards the Rising Star Scholarship. Tickets are being sold in Q-tip arms length sections. Cost is $20 for one arms length (38 tickets) and $10 for half an arms length (16 tickets). Any ticket amount less than 10 tickets will be $1 per ticket.

If you are interested in taking part in the 50/50 raffle, please find one of the following members of the FUNd Committee or Scholarship Committee: Amy Goldblatt (Team Gold), Twiggy (Team White), Ariel Shaw (Team Black), Margo Howe (Team Yellow), Evan Kirby (Team Atomic), or Kim Mahan (Team Atomic). We will be selling tickets at the fields Monday and Wednesday this week as well as at the Merrill after the games. The winner will be announced at the Mixer this coming Saturday at the Guild!
