Mid American Pompon is proud to be able to offer two scholarship programs each year. The Mid American Pompon Senior Scholarship is a $500 scholarship awarded to up to six graduating seniors each year. The Nancy Meadows Memorial Scholarship is awarded to several overnight summer camp participants in need of financial support in order to attend camp with their team.
Senior Scholarship recipients are selected by a panel of judges, who are members of the Mid American Pompon Advisory Board, who will score them on their academic achievements, contributions to their pompon team and sport of pompon, and community involvement, as well as their grammar and content in their essay submission.
In order to apply for the Senior Scholarship, applicants must:
- Be a graduating senior
- Must have at least a 3.2 Grade Point Average
- Download the application online
- All required application materials must be received in our office by Dec 15th.
- Applicants are required to have attended two or more Mid American Pompon events as a participant.
We are proud to have awarded over $50,000 in scholarship funds to our former performers!
2014 Senior Scholarship Recipients
Nancy Meadows Memorial Scholarship
Nancy Meadows was a long-time pompon coach, who continued her love for the sport of pompon as an Administrative member of the Mid American Pompon staff. Nancy was a mentor to coaches, campers, and Mid American staff members. After a battle with breast cancer, Nancy passed away in 2006. Nancy’s husband, Dr. Robert Meadows has graciously created the Nancy Meadows Memorial Scholarship in memory of his wife, and her dedication to the sport of pompon. Nancy was a firm believer in sportsmanship and teamwork, and believed that Mid American Pompon’s overnight summer camps were an integral part of the pompon team experience. Several full camp scholarships will be awarded each year. Applications must be submitted by a coach.
