MVP Basketball Camp Scholarship Guidelines
MVP offers weekly full scholarships to children and families who have limited access and resources for quality summer programming. To qualify for a full scholarship, families must provide documentation of income to show financial need as well as a reference from their school. Families who qualify for our scholarship program may also add additional weeks at partial scholarship rate.
Applying for an MVP Scholarship
Scholarship applicants will use the same online registration system. At the end of the registration process, instead of paying, click "Paying offline or applying for a scholarship" and then follow the online directions to mail documentation of family income and the camper's school reference letter. You will then be contacted about the status of your scholarship application once these documents are received. If you already been approved for an MVP Basketball Camp scholarship in the most recent year, you will NOT have to submit documentation again the following year.
Online applications are preferred. If you not not have access to complete our online registration process, please email Dillon@mvpbasketballcamp.org for a printed application to be mailed to 75 South Broadway, White Plains, NY 10601.
Hoops for Troops Scholarships
Hoops for Troops scholarship candidates do not need to provide documentation of family income. Simply use MVP's online registration system and follow the online directions to mail documentation noting that you are applying for a Hoops for Troops Scholarship. Please provide the name of the immediate relative currently or formerly serving in the Armed Forces with your documentation. Our Hoops for Troops scholarships cover one full week of camp. Hoops for Troops families may also register for additional weeks of camp at a partial-scholarship rate as needed.
25+ Years for the MVP Scholarship Fund
MVP has now served more than 25,000 children and granted more than 7,500 scholarships since 1994. We are excited to continue the mission of our founder, Stan Greene, as we continue to award more than 200 need-based scholarships annually to deserving families throughout Westchester County, NY.
We are honored that our community partners and supporters recognize the impact that MVP Basketball Camp and our scholarship program has on our youth both on and off the basketball court:
Former Knicks All-star Allan Houston said "MVP is a very special place where children gain confidence that they can take back with them to the classroom."
County Executive Bob Astorino wrote, "MVP Basketball Camp and all those that serve this noble organization are truly deserving of our reverence and appreciation to the athletic and personal development of youth in Westchester County, New York."
Backyard Sports Executive Director, Danny Bernstein said "MVP Basketball Camp is not just a basketball camp. Not only do the kids get a great summer basketball experience, they also get an opportunity to make friends with kids from all different backgrounds and neighborhoods who they otherwise likely would have never met. It is no coincidence that kids are still excited to come back to MVP every summer after more than 25 years."
