The scholarships, covering both sports and academics, will be offered to students in the U-13, U-15, and U-18 age categories. The last date to apply for the scholarship is July 31.

These trials will allow the players a chance to earn direct entry into the accredited Bengaluru FC academy which is the only Indian club-operated two-star academy by the Asian Football Confederation.
