to our 2014 
ISC Scholarship 

Ariana Bitsui & Brandon Coriz 

The Indigenous Soccer Cup (ISC) strives every year to not only bring together
the Native community in the spirit of competitive sport but also 
to give back to the participating student-athletes that make it all possible. 
This year we gave out scholarships of $500 each to two deserving 
student-athletes, one male and one female, that were a part of this year's ISC 
tournament. The scholarships will go directly toward the furthering 
of the student-athletes education.
