Youth Activity Scholarship

The City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications to provide scholarships to low to moderate income San Marcos youth in an amount up to $150 per child. The scholarship pays up to 50% of the registration fees for any of the programs offered by the City including team sports, Summer Fun, and a number of other programs and camps.


Scholarships are limited in number and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Eligibility does not guarantee assistance and assistance does not guarantee program registration. Participants must pay up to one-half of all program fees.


We require that you show proof of San Marcos residency or that your child attends an SMCISD school. The program requires each registrant to verify that the child receiving a Youth Activity Scholarship is from a family with a yearly income that is considered low to moderate, based on the number of family members who live in the child’s home.


Registration and payment for programs must occur on or before September 30, 2020 to qualify. Scholarship Applications must be submitted online using the Scholarship Application Form.  Once the application is approved, scholarship funds will be automatically applied to your online activity registrations.
