College Bound & Proud Scholarship


The College Bound & Proud Scholarship is a $2,500 award given to one male and one female athlete who are in good standing with USA Volleyball, are in their senior year of high school, and are registered for a USAV Junior National Championships event in 2021. Any athlete who has already received a full college scholarship will not be eligible for this award. The winners of this award will be chosen by a committee consisting of Team Travel Source team members, trusted business and education professionals, and USAV staff. Team Travel Source will narrow down the total applicant pool to the top four male and top four female athletes. The top eight applications will then be presented to the entire committee, and together, the group will make a final decision. The female winner of this award will be announced at the 2021 USAV Girls’ 18s Junior National Championships. The male winner will be announced at the 2021 USAV Boys’ Junior National Championships. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Kayleah Barnes at 502-354-9103 or
