2018 EFE USTENCI SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Help us provide need-based financial aid for Bay Area youth ultimate players to participate in the 2018 Youth Club Championships, including 2 full scholarships to players who embody exceptional spirit of the game, leadership and compassion.

In June 2016, the ultimate frisbee community lost a vibrant and loved individual. Just days after graduating from Berkeley High, Efe's heart failed while swimming in a lake and he passed away. He was a compassionate friend to many, an incredible ultimate athlete who always gave everything he had on every point, and an even greater human being who brought joy, humor and deep thought to everyone he was around. 

With your help, in 2018 we are awarding $4,600 in financial aid through the Efe Ustenci Scholarship Fund: 
- Two awards of $1,100 for 1 boy and 1 girl who each embody exceptional spirit of the game, leadership and compassion. These awards will fully cover the costs of playing at the Youth Club Championships, including the $599 YCC program fee (incl. hotel, jersey, etc.), $351 for flights, and $150 for additional expenses. 
- $2,400 in additional need-based financial aid to YCC players from low-income families. 
- We have already received $400 in donations prior to launching this crowdfunding campaign, so the amount we need to fundraise in this campaign is $4,200. 

By donating to the Efe Ustenci Scholarship Fund, you are helping to promote the sport he loved and carry on the values he upheld. Thank you. 

 
History: 
In the summer of 2016, we raised $2,300 for the Efejon Ustenci Scholarship Fund to fully cover the program fee and travel expenses for one boy and one girl. In 2017, we raised $3,750. In both years, the scholarship recipients have been very thankful and honored to carry out the scholarship's goal of promoting the sport Efe loved and carry on the values he upheld. They also had a blast on and off the field, making many lasting friends and memories.
