Football Delhi (Delhi Soccer Association), in association with Crayons Academy for Skills Excellence (CASE), has announced Under-16 award scholarships for young footballers. Further, during each calendar year, only two meritorious footballers -- a junior boy and girl -- will be identified based on their football skills and academic achievements for a scholarship. The eligibility criteria will require the players to have played in the sub-junior and junior open national level by representing their respective states and a minimum academic eligibility will be required as well.
The two selected students/football players who get selected for the scholarship will not be charged a professional fee from CASE & Football Delhi. Football Delhi has appointed CASE as partners for college sports admission advisors and mentors for young and aspiring football players from the Delhi/NCR. Football Delhi President Shaji Prabhakaran stated that "playing college sports is a unique way of combining education with high-level of competitive sports. This gives a player international exposure without any compromise on education".
