The Guy Emanuele Sports Fund is dedicated to enabling greater participation in school-sponsored sports programs, by individual students with scholarships to help offset costs of equipment, sportswear, transportation costs, fees, shoes, sports bags, tournament fees, and other related items required for participation. Currently, the focus is scholarships to enable Fremont Unified School District high school students to participate in after-school sports and cheerleading.
From its inception in 2003, FEF received applications from virtually every high school in a variety of after-school participants in both boys and girls sports and cheerleading programs FEF was proud to award scholarships in football, baseball, swimming, track & field, and cheerleading.
FEF is currently able to award up to $200 per scholarship recipient, funds permitting. A student may receive more than one scholarship if participating in different sports seasonally. Whether a scholarship is awarded, and the amounts of such scholarships, if any, are completely within the discretion of FEF.
The funding of scholarships is contingent upon verification by FEF that the student has been accepted on the squad.
