Financial Scholarship Info



The Wareham Tigers Athletic Association (WTAA) offers a limited amount of Financial Aid for families who wish to register into one of our sports programs, based on demonstrated need. Full or partial scholarships are given based on the degree of hardship. The WTAA Financial Aid Committee reviews and approves all applications prior to any decisions. All application information is kept 100% confidential. A separate application is required for each child in our program. We encourage applicants to make a copy of your completed application and supporting documentation for your records and to assist you in submitting future applications. If your application is not approved, or you were only approved for a partial scholarship, please consider an Installment Payment Plan which is offered for each program during the online registration process. You will be notified by the Close of Registration if your application has been approved. Application forms are available online (HERE).
