For a second year running Pepper Money funded the Wanderer’s Youth Academy Scholarships, demonstrating our commitment to making a difference and supporting overlooked sectors of our community.
Applicants were selected by a panel on the basis of their willingness to improve their skills outside of the game, their community engagement and their ambitions outside football.
The winners share in $15,000 worth of financial support for their Academy registration fees. They will also receive scholarship plaques and professional media training.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Pepper Money Scholarships: Alex Bonetig, Ali Auglah, Jetzen Lopez, Liam Bonetig, Evan Ball, Jake Lavella, Tom Ruperto, Dylan Craus, Peter Grozos and Jesper Webber.
The Youth Academy Scholarships are part of our continued support of the Western Sydney Wanderers’ community and form an integral part of our Kick Start initiative that gives talented players in the Wanderers Youth Academy a ‘kick start’ to their football careers.
