Each year, the Oakland Diocese CYO awards the Marty Mart Scholarship Award to an outstanding 8th grade CYO player. The award is named in honor of Marty Mart, longtime CYO associate director. The scholarship is funded entirely by private donations and is open to any 8th grade player who participated in a CYO sport this school year. (Players who participated only in Girls' CYO Volleyball are not eligible since there is a separate scholarship for them that was previously awarded.)
The scholarship committee is now inviting applications for this year's 2013 Marty Mart Scholarship Award, one $500 scholarship. An application is attached. Also, the application form will be posted on the CYO website, www.oaklandcyo.org. On the homepage is a link to a special page with information and past recipients of the award.
Over the past ten years, we have interviewed and awarded scholarships to many outstanding young people in our CYO program … thank you for what you do in helping to form and inspire these fine, young athletes!
The scholarship application and list of past recipients is available from the diocese web site.
