SCHOLARSHIPS

1/25/2023 Update:  We are happy to report that T-Mobile and Little League International have once again partnered together to offer the “T-Mobile Call-Up Grant Program”

WMLL Scholarship Coordinators

The first step in the process is to read this webpage to see if you think you might qualify and are interested in scholarship assistance.  Once you have determined that you want to seek scholarship assistance, please contact WMLL’s Executive Director, Ben Stuart, at executive.director@wmll.org to get setup with a scholarship coordinator who will walk you through the program and application process.  At any point along the way you will be able to work with your scholarship coordinator to answer any questions you may have.

T-Mobile Call-Up Grant

T-Mobile, a partner of Little League, will again have a Call Up Grant Program to help families in need pay their Little League registration fees.  You can apply for a grant by visiting their website (click here) and clicking on the Apply Now button.

While funds last, qualifying families will receive a debit card worth $150 from the T-Mobile program to use toward little league registration.  In these cases, WMLL will cover the remaining portion of the registration fee for a net $0 out of pocket to families

WMLL Scholarships

As indicated above, if a family qualifies and receives a $150 debit card from the T-Mobile program the remaining portion of registration fees are covered by WMLL.

If/when the T-Mobile program funds are gone, WMLL also offers scholarship support to families needing financial assistance to pay registration fees.  In this case, families will pay a reduced rate of $90 and will receive a WMLL scholarship covering the remaining portion of registration fee.

It is with the support of WMLL Sponsors who donate money to the WMLL Player Scholarship Fund that we are able to offer these programs.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a WMLL scholarship and/or T-Mobile grant, a family must qualify for SNAP, WIC, or Medicaid.  Unfortunately, Free/Reduced Lunch (FRL) is no longer accepted for eligibility because most school are offering Free/Reduced Lunch to all families. As such, it is no longer an effective determination of need.

Special Requests

WMLL considers special requests for financial assistance from (1) families who need support but do not meet WMLL scholarship eligibility requirements & (2) families that are unable to make the minimum scholarship payment.
