The Financial Aid Scholarship was created to help support families in need of financial assistance with tuition fees. The original scholarship was creatd in the name of Bob Masi, a father of three former Seacoast United players who lost his battle with cancer several years ago. His sons Joe, Michael, and Eric all went on to captain their collegiate teams at Stonehill College, Bates College and the University of New Hampshire respectively. This scholarship will help support eligible families with partial payment of their travel club registration fees, applied to final payments. Families receiving these awards must remain up to date with their fees prior to the final payment.
