US Youth Soccer South

Andy Stone Scholarship

Andy Stone Scholarship Award

The Andy Stone Scholarship was set up by the US Youth Soccer South Region to honor the dedication and commitment of Andy Stone, former South Region Director. Andy passed away suddenly in 1998. Any active member of the South Region may apply for the scholarship as per the guidelines in the application.

The 2023 Andy Stone Scholarship Application is now OPEN.

“In attaining this scholarship it started with work ethic on and off the field. This scholarship has helped me maintain that work ethic in and out of the classroom. It has also taught me to work extremely hard for the goals I have set forth for myself.” – Will Overstreet 

“The Andy Stone Scholarship has helped me pay for books and other miscellaneous expenses in college, such as school supplies and remaining academic fees that other scholarships did not pay for. Thank you to US Youth Soccer for this opportunity.” – Mia Graff

"Being chosen to receive the Andy Stone Scholarship has helped in allowing me to continue to follow my soccer aspirations, as well as my academic aspirations.  This scholarship helped motivate me to continue to work even harder than I did prior to receiving it. It is humbling and makes me appreciate just how blessed I am to receive this opportunity and to be where I am today.  Thank you to all who support me through this journey." - Carson Stephenson
