The Nick Borkowski Scholarship

The 2017 Nick Borkowski Scholarship has been awarded to Claire Unruh from Carroll High School, formerly with team Texas United. Congratulations Claire!

Since 2012, the Grapevine-Southlake Soccer Association has awarded an annual scholarship in honor of Nick Borkowski. Nick played soccer with GSSA for over 10 years, and this scholarship is intended to carry on his memory. 


The $1,500 scholarship per semester – to be applied toward college tuition – will be awarded each spring to a high school junior, senior or student currently enrolled in college. The second-semester support will be granted upon successful completion of enrolled classes with a B or better average. 


Preference for this scholarship will go to applicants that are planning on a full academic course load in the semester that they are applying for. The applicant should be able to demonstrate through community activities and academic achievements, that they have the potential to be leaders in their community.  


Preference will be given to those that have been actively involved in GSSA and/or Thunder FC (GSSC). Applicants should clearly state in a brief essay their goals – including their major and degree sought and expectations of what college should do to prepare them for a career.  


If interested, please submit your completed application, references and transcripts.Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.


Anyone wishing to contribute to the scholarship is encouraged to donate funds to GSSA. GSSA is a registered not for profit organization, so all donations are tax deductible.  If you have any questions, please contact the GSSA office at


Donations to the scholarship can be dropped or mailed to the GSSA at 1001 W. Northwest Hwy, Suite D, Grapevine, Texas 76051. Donations can also be made to the GSSA Scholarship Account at Legacy Bank in Grapevine, at the corner of Main St and Dallas Rd.
