Scholarships

The Ontario Amateur Softball Association has set up a fund to receive donations that are used exclusively to recognize U20 or U23 players that have demonstrated a combination of athletic performance, academic proficiency and community service. Donations can be made at any time by sending a cheque, made payable to the OASA Scholarship Fund, to the OASA Treasurer.

Eligibility is limited to players who have played at either the U20 or U23 OASA level in the year in which the scholarship is to be awarded. To apply for the scholarship, please visit our scholarship application page and submit prior to September 15.
