2024 College Scholarships for HS Seniors are due Apr 21

The Framingham United Soccer Club and the Framingham United Boosters Club annually offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have been players or referee members of FUSC and who will be attending an accredited two or four year college after graduation.  This year, the amount awarded for each scholarship is $750 and are awarded in memory of four individuals.

Henry Politzer, who is remembered and esteemed by our club, was a founding member of FUSC.  He conducted exceptional soccer coaching clinics, wrote numerous articles in “Coaches Corner” of Soccer New England, helped create the Pocket Skills and Drills Coaching Manual and participated in several Boys’ Memorial Day Tournaments.  Henry played professionally for six years in Vienna for the Austria Football Club.  FUSC honors his many years of dedication to the sport of soccer and to the children of Framingham through these scholarships.

Lori Vengrow, who died in 1998, graduated from Framingham High School in 1991 and participated as a player member of FUSC for many years.

Jonathan Allan, who died in 1997, graduated from Framingham North High School in 1990 and participated as a member of FUSC as both a player and referee for many years. This scholarship will be awarded to graduating seniors who, in addition to meeting all of the regular criteria, have performed notably as a referee.

Gillian Tara Shor, who died in 2000 at the age of thirteen, participated as a player member of FUSC even after emergency brain surgery diminished her skill and ability, but not her spirit. The soccer field at Brophy School is dedicated to Gil, and etched on the granite that marks the dedication is Gil’s motto: “Play hard, play fair, have fun.

Awards will be granted to students graduating from high school this year who:

  • Have lived in Framingham for six or more years
  • Been an active participant in FUSC for at least six seasons (spring/fall) - do not have to be consecutive
  • Referee applicants must have participated as licensed referees in the club for at least four seasons – do not have to be consecutive
  • Applicants’ school records must indicate a probability of success in a chosen field of higher education
  • Schools of choice must be accredited as either a two or four year program
  • Applicants who are not currently playing organized soccer or who have left the club to promote their own personal advancement of soccer are eligible to apply
The scholarship committee seeks a well-rounded student to be a scholarship recipient. Dedicated commitments to FUSC, school and community will weigh heavily in award selections
