The City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department accepts applications to provide scholarships to low to moderate income San Marcos youth in an amount up to $160 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.


Proof of San Marcos residency or that your child attends an SMCISD school is required. Each registrant must 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.
