Financial Aid

Program Overview

Marin FC is committed to accepting players into the club regardless of financial situation. For the '18-19 season , we have budgeted an increase in aid with approx. $85,000 planned for indirect aid (club fees reduced for aid qualifiers by 2/3) and $110,000 in direct aid (funds provided to players for their team fees).

The Financial Aid program is entirely need based. All recipients must apply and provide documentation of their financial need.  The most critical aspect of demonstrating need is a verification of gross household income, essentially the first two pages of income tax forms.

With need demonstrated, players pay reduced registration fees and an award is calculated as a percentage of the player's estimated team fees. No player is awarded a 'full ride' and commonly the maximum award granted is 75% of team fees for the most deserving.

YOU MAY APPLY AT ANY TIME and estimates will be provided upon a complete application. Final awards are subject to team selection, the overall pool of applicants and the available funds for aid.
