US Lacrosse's Michael Breschi Scholarship is awarded to two (2) graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college and are the son or daughter of a coach. The parent or guardian can be either a male or female coach in high school or college, and should be a full-time employee of an educational institution.
The Michael Breschi Scholarship was established in 2007 to honor the life of Michael Breschi, son of Joe Breschi, head men’s lacrosse coach at University of North Carolina. The scholarship was established to preserve Michael’s memory and pass on the steadfast support of the lacrosse community. It is the hopes of Coach Breschi's fellow coaches, that in awarding this scholarship to the child of another lacrosse coach, they might continue to show their continued support and care to the Breschi family.
Applications for the 2015 scholarships will open on or about May 1.
The scholarship winner is responsible for checking with the college or university to verify that his/her acceptance of this scholarship meets all institutional regulations, particularly with regard to financial aid packages. If the recipient is a scholarship-athlete, the scholarship must meet all NCAA regulations as they pertain to that institution and the student-athlete.
