Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer Association Liesel  Krehan Memorial Scholarship

In memory of the many contributions to youth soccer programs and particularly her many years of dedicated service to the Mid-New Jersey Youth Soccer Association, the MNJYSA Board of Directors has created two $1,000.00 scholarships in honor of Liesel Krehan. The scholarships will be awarded annually and paid to a male and female candidate.

A seasoned MNJYSA board member and dedicated follower of the sport, Liesel Krehan epitomized the spirit of youth soccer and volunteerism in New Jersey. Born in Germany in 1923, she was sent by her parents to live in England during WWII, where she met her husband, John, who served in the free Czechoslovakian forces in England. Though Liesel is no longer with us, her legacy lives on through the many initiatives she created in her tenure with MNJYSA. The scholarship is intended to honor her memory as well as reward the MNJYSA athletes who meet the following qualifications.

The scholarship criteria are as follows:

· You must be a graduating senior

· The award will be offered to any young person who will be attending any type of formal post high school education.

This includes, but is not limited to, trade, technical, artistic, junior college, college, university, or any other type of formal post high school education.

· Academics, although important, will not be the sole or necessarily the most important aspect of the selection process.

· The parents'/student's financial situation will not be considered as one of the elements of the selection process.

· The candidate has to have been associated with a MNJYSA affiliates club/team as an athlete, volunteer trainer, or as a referee during his/her high school years.

· The candidate has to have his/her association verified by resolution of an affiliated Club's Board of Directors. · The application submitted must be post marked by the date requested.

· Letters of recommendation will be required from a High School coach, a Club official and community source (i.e. employer, counselor, priest, rabbi, teacher, etc.)


The award will go to the student athlete who best exemplifies the IDEALS of self-discipline, responsibility, good citizenship, team work, and your individual contribution to your Club/team.

Applications must be post marked by May 15, 2018.
