The United States Practical Shooting Association, in conjunction with camp sponsors, is pleased to offer a training camp opportunity to USPSA junior members who participate in action shooting sports and have a strong desire to further his or her skills, but whose families may not otherwise be able to cover the cost of the camp's admission and associated fees.
USPSA is offering a total of 5 summer junior camp scholarships. These scholarships are open to juniors ages 9 – 18 with a current USPSA membership.
Eligibility: Age-eligible youth ages 9 - 18 in financial need are welcome to submit the scholarship application (link below) along with an approximately 250 word (1,000 characters maximum) essay based on the following criteria:
- The essay must be written by the applicant.
- The essay should explain why competition shooting has been important in the applicant's life and what the applicant hopes to gain from the experience of attending a summer camp.
A photograph of the applicant should accompany the essay and application. Please note that applicant essays and photos are published in Front Sight magazine upon selection for scholarship. It is perfectly acceptable for a parent to request that we not publish their child's photo. We will of course respect those wishes and such requests do not influence the decision to award a scholarship in any way.
Review Process: A selection committee will review all applications. All applicants will be notified in writing of the committee's final decision. For questions regarding the USPSA Young Guns Program or scholarships, please email: [email protected].
