GISELE CURRIER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Gisele Currier was a beloved member of the Timbers Army whose untimely passing in 2011 was a devastating blow. In memory of Gisele, an outpouring of donations were offered to the 107IST in order to support soccer projects in the metro area in her name. Out of this outpouring of generosity emerged the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund (formerly the Gisele Currier Memorial Fund), which was first awarded in the summer of 2011.
The purpose of Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund is to support soccer in the greater Timbers and Thorns academy area by providing scholarships to deserving youths. These scholarships may take the form of paid club fees, direct financial support, soccer gear or any other forms deemed to support the purpose of the organization as deemed prudent by the GCSF board.
The first recipients of the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund in 2011 were:
In 2017, the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund awarded 49 soccer scholarships to youth in and around the Timbers and Thorns academy area for a total of $19,953. In April and May of this year (2018) the GCSF awarded 29 soccer scholarships for a total of $13,055. Scholarship recipients range in age from 8 to 16 years of age, and scholarship award amounts vary based on individual need.
The Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund is not accepting applications at this time.
